about this item

An examination of three multi-component works: Andrea Ward’s Hairstories, Glynis Humphrey’s Gorge and Suzanne Swannie’s Considering Two Small Forms, for Maja and Marta. Apart from illuminating body image issues and other details of women’s lives, these works hold in common a distinctive “aniconism”- the avoidance of figurative depictions of women’s bodies. They exemplify a critical tendency in Second-Wave feminist art-making: the commitment to engage with women’s subjectivity while at the same time refusing to depict women’s bodies as objects of “the gaze”.
