Bobby Premiered Mad Gyms & Kitchens at ICIA. She developed this show out of her own experiences of illness and hard-won recovery. Designed in collaboration with sculptor Charlie Whittuck, an extraordinary set of fantastical ‘recovery’ apparatus delivered surprises galore as well as state-of-the-art technical equipment, all developed with wellbeing in mind.
