Exhibition Opening: Big Swinging Ovaries by Jess de Wahls

When:
Every day until Mon 25 Jun 2018
Time:
17:30–19:30
Details:
Berlin-born, London-based Jess De Wahls is known as the ‘enfant terrible of British textile arts’ for her boundary-pushing, provocative, contemporary fibre art. She is heading to the Blue Mountains in June to premiere her first and only Australian exhibition here at Platform.

The exhibition will feature Jess’ signature embroideries, where her ovary motif is stylised into various maximalist patterns, including ovaries as cacti, rainbows, and Frida Kahlo.

About her work, Jess says: “I use my work to explore societal ideas of what it means to be a woman: from governments trying to restrict and legislate what women do with their bodies, to society judging women for both having and not having ovaries. Traditionally ovaries are such an integral part of being a woman, and yet there are many other ways of being a woman, from being a transgender woman to having had reproductive organs removed surgically to just being born in a body that doesn’t conform to any gender.”

“What matters to me is that people make up their own mind and interpret my art for themselves, no matter what I intended. What matters is whether or not the work speaks to you.”

So come along to the exhibition opening, hear from Jess, and see and interpret this incredible work for yourself.

The exhibition continues until 25th June.

Opening Hours:
Monday - Saturday: 10-5
