A group exhibition of female artists curated by Ruby Cedar & Katie Tindle at Art Lacuna, Clapham.
30th of June - 1st of July 2018.
Audre Lorde's Uses of the Erotic functioned as a point of departure for the artists included in this show. Lorde describes the erotic as a deeply feminine power and as a capacity for joy. These artists have been brought together because their work leaves us feeling warm. They have all read the text, some have made work that connects to it and for others it is purely our projection.

Performance, video, installation.
'Ruby is interested in how bodies hold memories, intergenerational exchanges between women both experiential and through reading their words aloud. And finally exploring sensation as a radical act of object (woman) feeling.'
