‘womanslaughter’ exhibition at Art Central
July 2 - August 13
2 July 22 to 13 August 22 Art Central, Barry.
dinahvagina, who lives and works in Wales, opens her exhibition ‘womanslaughter’ at Art Central Gallery, Barry on 2nd July , the exhibition runs until 13th August. Margaret Atwood tells us that what men fear most from women is that they will laugh at them and what women fear most from men, is that they will kill them. Art Central is proud to unveil a comprehensive selection of work including a large body of new pieces that add to dinah’s vital collection, work that demands and deserves your attention.
Known for her uneasy & controversial subject matter, dinah does not shy away from ethical and moral issues/ Having spent a decade documenting the toll male violence takes from women, where men kill those who love them, dinah faces the violent climate that women live in and braces against it with her outspoken activism, awareness raising and her challenging of norms. In Welsh towns and cities dinah has called out the names of murdered women as a performance; around her on the ground lay numerous handmade ceramic female figurines. Great handmade books recording the loss of women’s lives and their histories, currently on tour in Scandinavia, speak to her depth of knowledge and commitment to remembering them all.
