Recent events have caused me to become ever more concerned with violence shown towards women. In public and also in their own homes.
Links above are to two current stories: the murders of two women in London, Sarah Everard and Sabina Nessa. Both women were approached while alone and both ended up killed.
From Everard’s Vigil:
- “could have been anyone”
- “we have all felt unsafe when it is dark outside”
- “stand in solidarity with all women”
- “shame on you” chant as policed removed women from vigil
Ms Harman said women’s confidence in the police “will have been shattered”.
I find a relation between the deep yet unseen connection that women share with each other; and the hidden underground network of fungi that links them all to each other from afar. I want to try and show this relation through my art within this project.
