This Tuesday there’s an open discussion with @miriamaustin, #AnnaHughes, @taishani, @florence_peake at @bosse_and_baum, Peckham, 7 - 8:30pm:
Lotus, a group show, is on @bosse_and_baum until 25 November. Open Wed-Sat, 12-6pm. The exhibition features the work of seven female artists, draws on traditions of myth making, magic, ritual, and performance, to create a dialogue with the rich feminist artistic and literary history that explores the presentation of the self and offers occult ways to re-imagine history’s flow. Engaging with ideas of tradition, myth, mysticism and the occult, seven artists work towards alternative visions of the past and future, offering strategies for making, practicing and performing that re-conceive notions of tradition, deep time and prophecy. Poised precariously between a futuristic utopianism and nostalgic dreams of re-enchantment, these artists establish esoteric solidarities in working and making that serve to ground new, feminist histories of the self.
The current exhibition, Andromedan Sad Girl, at Wysing Arts Centre, with Florence Peake and Tai Shani, taps into these ideas. Drawing on their research into structures of feminism, their immersive installation is an imagining of what a pre or post patriarchal site could be. Peake and Shani are interested in exploring the fluid mythologies and imagined futures of lost civilizations. The artists take an archaeological excavation as a point of departure to imagine and represent non-hierarchal, pre-historical or futuristic civilizations, imagined through ambitious new sculptural works and wall paintings. @florence_peake @taishani @miriamaustin @wysing_donna #lotus #myth #fluidmythologies #mysticism #occult #ritual #andromedansadgirl #feministhistories #imaginedfutures #prepatriarchy #postpatriarchy #lookingforward @maryhurrell @wandawieser @hollywhite4eva @candidapowellwilliams
