Curated by Sophie Buonomo and Ali Clark

Women live in a borderland between public and private. Their bodies are considered objects of desire, ready for consumption by the public gaze but also political, shameful and dangerous. Their minds are designated as the keepers of nostalgia, of family memories and the domestic sphere, yet this perceived capacity for intimacy and sentimentality contains explosive power as well as being rife with contradiction. These seven artists confront the female gaze and its perception of memory, (dis)comfort and nostalgia, whilst examining the contradictions and power inherent in these seemingly “soft” forms of artistic sight. - Sophie Buonomo and Ali Clark
