Bio Selected Works


Sally Hackett was born in 1991 in Glasgow, Scotland. She graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 2012 and completed an MFA at Royal College of Art, London in 2019.

Sally Hackett is an artist and educator living and working in Scotland. Sally makes sculpture with a range of materials of widely different shelf lives and sell by dates from glazed ceramics to peanuts, garlic husks and toilet rolls. Spurred by intuitive making, Sally creates her work predominantly around emotion and mental states. Characters appear showing stories of social intricacies, heartbreak and human failure but with a playful aesthetic of bright colours and cartoon faces. She has worked on projects with a wide range of organisations, completing projects and residencies with Glasgow Women’s Library, GOMA, Project Ability, Platform, Panel and Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. Recent exhibitions include ‘A Weakness for Raisins’ CCA, Glasgow (2018) ‘A toilet is a wishing well’ Generator Projects (2020), ‘Soft Paw on my Fire Brain’ Quench Gallery, Margate (2021) and ‘Therapets of your dreams’ Hospitalfield, 2021.
