HER lonely by Sherrie Edgar
HER lonely is series of photographs and film of women from the West Midlands experiencing loneliness and isolation. This work casts a spotlight on the untold and hidden reasons why women can be excluded from society. The artworks are delicate portrayals of both historic and contemporary issues affecting women such as identity, sexism, belonging, relationships, stigmatization, othering, and misclassification.
Intergenerational Women by Tarla Patel
Intergenerational Women is a personal journey of three generations of women in one family and their memories connected to home, through the personal and intimate family photographs of the Masterji photography archive. A continuous conversation explores identity from one generation to another in the physical act of wearing a sari, the 9 yards of fabric folds and twist with each memory; changing and repeating from one body to another. The artwork evokes and reflects on the past and present. Representing the legacy of women in one family by exploring memory and space both physically and metaphorical spatiality through a story of migration and belonging. It was created to move away from ‘women’ being the objects of history, to shaping and personalising the stories with their authorship and authentic voice.
