Description

Desperate Artwives in collaboration with Leyden Gallery are launching a new series of events starting on Friday 27th April 2018. These multisciplinary evenings aim at exploring the work of women artists by providing an opportunity to present their work.

Our first evening will include:

First slot 8pm

  • Delea Shand - Delea is a classically trained singer that has worked to a large extent in experimental music and performed a lot of graphic scores (graphic scores use images and instructions instead of using standard notation with fixed pitches and duration). Delea will be performing ‘Life changes into a beautiful world’ which she composed together with her children. http://deleashand.com/about-2/
  • Alex March – is a multidisciplinary artist working with drawing, film, photography collage and painting. For SHE SHOWS, Alex will present ‘Torture the Women’ (The China Cupid) a short film composed of a series of scenes taken from Hollywood screen tests of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca. These scenes are digitally re-drawn and re- animated, the text edited and spliced to explore the cultural literary manipulations of woman as romantic object. The phrase ‘torture the women’ was used by Hitchcock when asked for his advice on how to make a thrilling movie. https://alexmarchcom.wordpress.com/
  • Sharon Reeves Sharon received a MA Visual Arts in Printmaking at Camberwell School of Art, London. Her practice engages with a search for the real, the raw and the power of sexual and emotional expression in our sense of identity. Inspiration comes from themes of suppression, inhibition, emotional resistance and freedom of expression of femininity, sexuality and self. ‘Licentia’ is an early video work that engages with the emotion of Printmaking and it’s process. The intense and sometimes brutal mature of etching and drypoint, especially resonate with the hyper-sensuality her work explores. https://www.sharonreevesart.co.uk/
  • Mieke Vanmechelen - born in Belgium Mieke now lives and work in Ireland. She received her BA Philosophy and Classical Civilization from Trinity College Dublin and completed an MA in Art & Process at Crawford College of Art & Design. For SHE SHOWS she will be presenting ‘Nothing Further’. ‘Nothing Further’ is a visual poem about self-acceptance. The person is a ghostly presence and in the search for her ‘self’ she revisits matrixial transubjective encounters with partial subjects. These objects are represented by three figures, the Imaginary, Symbolic and the Real. https://miekevanmechelen.com/

Second slot 8:45

  • Anne Sumner – Croydon-based singer-songwriter Anne Sumner was raised learning classical piano and violin and turned to piano and later guitar- based songwriting in her 2os with a view to getting involved in the local open mic scene. Her delicate and compelling acoustic sound has been warmly welcomed at folks clubs across the southeast and earned her several local BBC radio features. February 2018 saw the joint release of her second studio albu Beacon and its acoustic partner Half-light. http://www.annesumnermusic.com

Third Slot 9:10

  • Leah ThornLeah is a spoken word poet, activist and lecturer, published through performance, film and anthologies in England and the United States. At the heart of her poetry is the autobiographical exploration of identity and issues of liberation. Leah is the founder of ‘Older Women Rock’ – a project of poetry, retro clothes, performance and film to raise awareness and explore issues facing women in early old age [late 50s to early 70s]. During SHE SHOWS Leah will be presenting a clip of Older Women Rock (extract of a longer documentary) and perform poetry that highligths issues such as lack of media representation and the beauty industry's influence on self-esteem and self-image . http://www.leahthorn.com/ https://loveolderwomenrock.wordpress.com/about/
