Artist Talk: Clare SamuelEvents
About The Event
Join us for our latest Artist Talk, as Clare Samuel talks about her work 'To Bend & To Shape', which explores the feminine Other through the history and legacy of early-modern witch hunts.
To Bend & To Shape draws from the history of witch hunts during the early-modern period – in both Europe and its colonies – viewed here as an attempt at systemic annihilation of the feminine Other. Not only does this work examine these histories. It also explores how folktales and contemporary myths around femininity have been influenced by this persecution of the Other, from the past to the present.
