About

A multidisciplinary exhibition about being female in a world narrated by and designed for men. Four contemporary visual and multidisciplinary artists have been asked to react to the status quo of a male-oriented world. The exhibition will provide a space for the development of experimental contemporary art, allowing artists to develop their practice, and exposing audiences to multidisciplinary works.

We believe that the world’s default is a man’s reality; our spaces, tools and narratives are designed to fit a man’s physicality and a ‘masculine’ behaviour. This show asks how patriarchal norms - many so ubiquitous that we are not even conscious of them - can be challenged effectively. How can the status quo in a male-oriented world be redefined systematically, soberly and successfully? And how can new ways of being be normalised to reflect a more balanced world.

Strangers in a Strange Land asks how we can re-design, re-narrate and re-see what is said, what is valued. What can a more feminine perspective contribute, and what does a feminine perspective mean in terms of physical, philosophical and societal outlooks? And does the bilateral depiction of ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’ exist, or to what extent is it a false construct?
