'The Original Women: He Condemned Them'

2021

 

This sculpture, surrounded in latex, human hair and gold leaf is a relic in honour of Lilith and Eve - the first women and wives of Adam, and the creators of original sin.

 

The glass spy hole is a space to view the relics of Lilith (made of clay) and Eve (made of rib), mimicking a sacred object found in Catholic churches. Except this one prompts conversation about the ways biblical women and feminine figures are represented/misrepresented.

Art Council supported commission for Ride Your Pony No.4 exhibition at Abingdon Studios, Blackpool.
