Between the Seams
"If the female condition seems perplexing at the moment, the reason, it becomes evident, is that women are left straddling two rather incompatible positions. Feminism ("Don't call me honey, dickhead") and femininity ("I just found the world's best push up bra!") are in a big catfight, nowhere more than within each individual female psyche." (Laura Kipnis, The Female Thing, 2006) Taking this perspective as a young women growing up in the 21st century Hannah Winston explores the battle between these two sides of a young woman and the struggle to balance them in their lives. Through the process of weaving, a practice associated with women, the artist challenges her own identity and attitude towards women and femininity.
