“Adam, and by extension all men, were made from clay. They were therefore hard and strong. Eve, because she was made from Adam’s body, was weaker and softer, but that meant her mind was sharper. She was defined less by what her body could do than what her mind was free to achieve without the burden of heavy flesh.” Hildegard of Bingen (b.1098)*
As a prolific thinker and writer, Hildegard tried to make sense of what she knew – that women of her time had much to contribute to society, but were being silenced. Underpinning this group exhibition is the idea that ‘girlhood’ is unique, and experienced differently by every individual. Many would also disagree with Hildegard; in fact the freedom to imagine is very often held back by the form of a person’s flesh.
This exhibition is a space dedicated to celebrating women and non-binary artists in contemporary painting, presents the works of Annabelle Chace, Noemi Conan, Jasmin Jahmeelah, Uchercie, and Lorena Prain,
