EVE AND ADAM (2015)

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

 

According to the Bible, women were purely created 'for' man to be a 'helper'; a secondary construct born from Adam’s rib. 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’, whilst also questioning what contemporary society deems ‘masculine’ or ‘feminine’. The use of collage allows for such archaic gender binaries to be ripped apart and the use of stitching attempts to reconstruct and repair them.
