Hey, Listen Up :: Amanda Bromfield
16 Feb – 31 Mar 2019
Gallery 3

Official Opening: 6pm Friday 15 February 2019

 

Hey, Listen Up champions the empowerment of women through storytelling. Feminist activist Gloria Steinem said ‘You cannot empower women without listening to their stories’. It is the sharing of and listening to women’s stories that begins a conversation that
creates social and political awareness about women’s issues that enables the possibility, for positive, social transformation.

Hey, Listen Up gives voice to women’s hidden stories, untold by generations of women who have been silenced by servitude, anger, embarrassment and fear of retribution. Clay ‘women’s embroidery’ and pre-loved underwear are combined to represent women telling the stories of their lived experiences. These objects include handmade ceramic flowers, life size women’s undergarments and large-scale sculptures that represent women. The inclusion of women’s craft references both the labour of love, and the low value assigned to traditional women’s art and ‘work’ and, the unpaid hours of domestic servitude of past generations of women.
