“OXO” by Jessica Straus
The exhibition highlights work by female artists that captures complex aspects of women’s physical and social experiences. The theme is the physical and cultural space women occupy. Angela Lorenz will talk about “Victorious Secret,” a nine-piece mosaic wall installation depicting elite Roman athletes from ancient times. Lisa Kushner, who created the “Belly Project” with photographer Peggy McKenna, will speak about the evocative photographs that shed light on the wide variations and depth of women’s reproductive experiences. Jessica Straus’ “Red Dress Series” explores the poetry of unexpected juxtapositions between recognizable and invented forms; in this case, a tiny well-dressed female figure finds herself in a number of perplexing locations. Waterfall Arts is located at 256 High Street in Belfast. The show runs through July 26. Visit waterfallarts.org for details and a complete schedule.
