Iron Fist in a Velvet Glove
Many times a gentle demeanor conceals a resolute personality, and a softness in speech and manner betrays a certain severity. This exhibition explores the tensions between these two attitudes, particularly in women. One of the featured works will be Shedding the Shadows, a dress and tapestry woven out of discarded items of clothing. Seemingly useless objects are repurposed into a series of ropes, with their connotation of strength and usefulness, and they in turn are compiled into a dress that is at once revealing and protective.
Featured artists: Hugo Moro, David Leroi, Damian Sarno, Natasha Duwin, Venessa Monokian, Nina Surel, Adriana Carvalho, and Agustina Woodgate
