EVE AND ADAM (2015)

Mixed media installation (screenprint, collage, stitching), dimensions variable.

 

As a secondary construct born from Adam’s rib, the Bible suggests that women were purely created for men to be their 'helper'. Informed by the ‘HeForShe’ campaign, feminist critical theory and the fight against 'pinkification', Eve and Adam aims to challenge and subvert the idea of woman as a subordinate ‘object’, while also questioning what contemporary society deems ‘masculine’ or ‘feminine’. The use of collage allows for representations of archaic gender binaries from mass media magazines to be ripped and torn apart. The use of stitching then allows for them to be reconfigured and pieced back together in a new, queer worldview.
