Bel Pye is interested in the everyday art-making that is crucial to surviving hostile times. They try to respond to injustice through small acts of accessible protest, often by adding overtly political details to everyday objects. Bel's practice is fatigue informed and grounded in the queer, mad and chronically ill communities they live in.
