Opening Friday 8 June 2018
Gentle, soft womanhood gently fights violently secured bolts. Light weighted paper peels away from the aggressive masculine force that contains it. Mother of all: Venus is born and must be covered – quick.
A veil censors what of the female form is not suitable for public viewing and discourse. Such drapery hides the most intimate and uniting human facets of what it means to be a woman; unique to no one, and common to all: what is natural and what is normal? Behind a veil, tangible or not, all women are to hide.
