Rosie McGinn is an artist interested in unpicking heightened moments of euphoria and despair through a range of mediums including kinetic sculpture, inflatable installation, video, text and print; from a 9ft Paul Gascoigne puppet to stuffed Torvill and Dean figurines reliving the Boléro on robot hoovers. Her recent work has gravitated towards [British] sport and leisure whilst observing the communities where rituals, such as Bingo, going ‘out out’ and football, provide a sense of faith and escapism. For ‘HOWSE’  McGinn also transformed her grandma, who she lived with during her Masters, into a giant inflatable Bingo woman who fully inflates for 10 seconds of swollen celebration and deflates for 2 slow minutes of melting defeat. McGinn, originally from Maidstone and now based in London, often incorporates people who are ‘uninterested’ in the art world. The practice remains unashamedly accessible and connected to a wider audience through its familiar references, use of humour and acute observations of human behaviour.
