TIME AND PLACE
Running till 22/03/2011
@ Green Lens Studios
4a Atterbury Road,
As most of us know, this month is Women’s History Month. To help us highlight the remarkable achievements and contributions of women in history and contemporary society, Green Lens Studios in collaboration with project curators Jonida Gashi and Roger Orwell, are staging an exhibition by a group of international female artists based in London.
In this exhibition, the transnational and multiethnic nature of women’s history will be explored through differing media. Each artist will engage with a particular aspect of this history- or, should we say, of these histories- through the media of: painting, sculpture, exterior architecture, sound, moving image, writing and mark-making. In some ways these are hidden histories in that messages of female identity are opened up and exposed from within.
The participating artists are:
Lina Hakim (Lebanon) working with text/book
Bommsoon Lee (South Korea), working with sound installation
This year’s winner of the CASS Prize for sculpture Mina Salimi (Iran), working with text/ sculpture
Macarena Yanez (Chile), working with urban surfaces and external architecture
Linshu Zhang (China), working with 2D narrative figuration, oil on canvas
