Your Space Or Mine
The London-based photographer speaks to us about curation, her creative space HOME and her collaboration with Your Space Or Mine.
From the start of her career to now, Ronan Mckenzie has quickly established herself as one of London’s most authentic and multifaceted creatives. Born and raised in Walthamstow, East London, her rise to success saw Mckenzie progress from a beaming young artist participating in an art foundation and internship at I-D magazine to a highly skilled creative with a plethora of titles under her job description.
Developing on her background in styling, lockdown saw Mckenzie delve into the design world after a newfound interest in sewing pushed her to launch her own brand Selasi. But her versatility did not stop there, last year also saw Mckenzie launch HOME – a black-owned multifunctional creative space in North London that features an art gallery, community events space and creative workspace for members of the community to enjoy. “HOME responds directly to the personal and communal need for a more honest and representative space, that cares deeply for the artists we present and the community of people that we welcome into our space,” she told us, speaking on what pushed her to launch the project.
