Playing with the 19th Century childhood nursery rhyme that describes a child born on Sunday to be good and gay, Hannah Brontë's exhibition Sunday's Child is an exploration of Queer Joy. Through Queerification of a western heteronormative family structure, Brontë allows us to expand our lineage to those that we call family.

"I was raised in a Queer and blended family that gave me a very broad view of what family means. The ones who can dream, dance, eat. learn, grow and worship with are not always who we are born to", Brontë writes.

Shot with film, amongst the backdrop of places in nature that nurture and protect the protagonists, Brontë asks us to see Queer Joy in all its tender glory.
