Opening of ‘Under the dress, beneath the flower’ college exhibition by feminist contemporary artist Georgia Grace Gibson, 30th of January, 2014
Photography from my first ever exhibition to show my a level work! It went so wonderful, so many people turned up (I don’t even have a photo from when the room was full to the brim because I was two busy chatting about my work!), I never expected to have so much interest but it was wonderful to meet people; the room was full of friends, family, artists, teachers, strangers and some lovely ones from durham feminist forum. The pieces I put on included; fruit of the womb series (sarah lucas response), building a nest for womanhood (alvarado response), I don’t only have glitter in my veins, all the boys love long hair (thurley response), scarred, loved, lived (another set also found here also), florals bloom and things I can show in my sketchbook instead of another 2cm of a female body, plus more work which has yet to be put online including a set of ‘bitch stitch’ place matts made with florals material and nude polaroids (these can be seen on the first photograph slightly, stitched onto the table cloth. I had such a wonderful response to all these pieces, with so many lovely comments and interesting questions on my methods and meanings. It was great to here some more interpretations and collect some ideas for new pieces.
Thank you to everyone who came and supported be, I was absolutely thrilled. More photos to come soon will be on a tag.
