LAUGH OF THE MEDUSA
29 JULY- 14 AUGUST
The exhibition was born of anger, and actions that formed from the tragic murders of numerous women and children at the hands of men, many trusted partners. Eurydice Dixon, Jill Meagher, Celeste Manno, Luke Batty, Masa Vukotic, Renea Lau, Eunji Ban, Aiia Maasarwe, Tracey Connelly, Hannah Baxter and her three children, to name just some of many. The artist interprets the grief and loss, and the strength of those that survived attacks, into works of transformation with the female representing the warrior. Notions of witchcraft or weaponising our innate powers, the artwork celebrates women as strong and adaptable beings with the ability to fight and overcome.
Shaped by notions of the fear that pervades and the strength that can be brought to bear by women, the artist pays homage to the victims and leaders of the cause and the silent warriors working against the machinations of patriarchal culture.
