In a time of great turmoil, confusion, ‘genderless-ness’. political upheaval, re-awakenings, survival and death; where concepts of everything, our existence, our mortality, our natural world, our beliefs, our survival are being questioned, exploded, imploded and uncertain. Three women artists question how they came to be ‘me’, what it is to be ‘you’ and who it is to be ‘god’ in a multifaceted unravelling world. Looking backward and forward, outside and inside, upwards and downwards they pose a question for you…
Who are you? What are you? Where did you come from?
Our three artists, all women working on and around different concepts of self, identity, ideas and the consequences of grappling with the trials aand tribulations of ‘Woman’ ‘God’. Nature and Religion.
Mona Osman raised as a Jewish and Muslim woman investigating the concept of self and existentialism in regards to the bible. Mellissa Kime exploring the ‘woman’ persecuted and forced into hiding by Catholicism, whilst celebrating their survival and her ancestral connection to womanhood. And Sirpa Pajunen-Moghissi delving into the inherited skill of her mother’s religious iconographic paintings whilst distorting the concept of who is god by revitalising it through a pantheist viewpoint.
