Sarah McEwan: All the things I never said
Links Gallery: 1 August - 20 September
- Sarah McEwan, All the things I never said 2015, textiles, acrylic paint, wood, bed frame (detail)
All the things I never said explores the female voice and how culture, history and lived experience mark bodies and form internal architectures. It invites the audience into a private and confessional world where thoughts and feelings unfold using text, found objects and textile
This installation challenges traditional notions of self portraiture as the simple torso figures contain no face. By eliminating 'the body', this feminist action interrupts the Cartesian legacy of women being defined by their physical features. The external falls away and thoughts hold centre stage; repeating and falling, repeating and falling.
