Anna Barriball’s first major survey exhibition, at MK Gallery, brings together drawing, video, photography and sculpture made over the last decade. Barriball’s early work often involves transforming ordinary items: Bag drawing, 2000, a disposable, white plastic bag is completely covered with red marker pen to create a glowing, concentrated object, while Money drawing, 2000, a five pound note coated in gold ink, accentuates the creases made from daily handling.
