Still Reeling - Films by or about Triennial Artists

Join us at Quarterhouse on Friday 3 September at 6.30pm for a celebration of artist Jyll Bradley and the world premiere of her film, M.R (2021).

In 1960’s Britain, over 160,000 children were ‘given up’ for adoption at birth through a closed system which denied them any legal right to their identity until adulthood. Jyll Bradley was one of those children.

Bradley’s new film M.R. is the story of an artist in search of her creative origins and a language to express the trauma, displacement and invisibility of the adoptee. A creation story for our times, M.R. asks universal questions about why we make art and how art, in turn, makes us.

This film, supported by Arts Council England, is a tender coming of age story exploring the subject of childhood adoption, creativity and identity.
