Billie Zangewa, Date Night  2017

Zangewa’s hand-stitched wall hangings show mundane and intimate moments of daily life. She uses her drawings as patterns to create these pieces, destroying them in the process. Though autobiographical, they show common, shared experiences with which viewers can easily identify. Here the artist is seen in her bathtub, with a glass of red wine and a tablet showing a scene from the TV series Game of Thrones propped up on the toilet seat. She is having a ‘date night’ with herself: a private moment of feminist self-affirmation.

Behold Man!

Frances Stark, Behold Man!  2013

Stark’s works often represent the artist’s studio as a site not only of creation, but also of research, inactivity, boredom and desire. Here she represents herself in deep thought surrounded by images of men, paintings by Sylvia Sleigh and photographs of Henri Matisse with his female models. Stark looks back at stereotypes seen in visual culture, such as the active male artist and passive female model and recasts them from her own perspective. The scene also includes images of her assistant Bobby Jesus, who is often the subject and inspiration for her work.

Joan Jonas, Organic Honey’s Visual Telepathy  1972


This video is based on a 1972 performance, the first in which Joan Jonas used a mix of pre-recorded and live video images. Here Jonas acts both as a woman in neutral clothes (herself) and as a hyper-feminine character called Organic Honey. The character appears to be obsessed with her own image, multiplied by mirrors and video effects. This work is typical of Jonas’s interest in ritual gestures, as well as in the use of masks, symbolic objects and the act of drawing.

Selected Wall Collages

Mary Beth Edelson, Selected Wall Collages  1972–2011

To make these 143 collages, Edelson used found images from a range of different sources. These include ancient mythology, art history, popular culture and nature photography. Artists Georgia O’Keeffe and Lee Krasner appear alongside the ancient Greek trickster-goddess Baubo, Botticelli’s Venus, model and singer Grace Jones and former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama. Many of the images come from Edelson’s research into the figure of the goddess as a creative force, bridging nature and humanity. The power of the goddess is represented in the overall shape of a wave.
