Through out history, the female body has been conflated with multiple and often conflicting meanings – from sexuality and desire, to innocence and reproduction, and even, other and difference. However, these four artists reverse, change, overlap and confuse this tradition of female representation. Not only are women artists now presenting the female body in various ways and forms, but, as this exhibition will show, when women choose to present and manipulate their own image, a strong personal narrative emerges. As each artist addresses her own concerns of personal history, belonging, nature or identity, self representation through the female form continually creates endless possibilities. With painting, photography, video and textile art, this exhibition presents four women’s attempts to understand themselves through their one key device of experience – their own bodies.

Gallery Hours – Wednesday to Saturday 11am – 5pm.
