HATCHED 2017 Events and Talks

HATCHED curator, Maga Esberg said: “It seems more urgent than ever to find ways to communicate female experience whether it is our private daily domestic struggles or more extreme social injustice. Battles we once thought were won, inequalities that we believed were behind us have re-surfaced. The artists in Hatched 2017 aim to be part of this dialogue, to communicate their concerns. Concerns which are personal to them and their experience but reflect on the wider issues. These works don't standalone they are part of a bigger movement of women globally intent on being heard. Several of the works in HATCHED 2017 resonate with me as a woman, an artist, a daughter... whilst other pieces open up new and unknown experiences and horizons. I think we are all ready to be #boldforchange!"

 

Artists featured in the exhibition include:

  • Harriet Rutter’s Bullfinch – Semiotics of Birds, which explores child exploita- tion, alluding to recent local events that have impacted her sense of social re- sponsibility as a woman and a mother.

  • Fiona Yaron-Field’s Safe Haven, a series of portraits of pregnant women who know their baby will be born with Down’s syndrome. Her work aims to chal- lenge the ‘ideal’ image of family and questions what it means to be inclusive and accept human differences.

  • Hugh Palmer's Press for change! a participatory installation created in response to learning about Female Genital Mutilation, via Oxford Against Cutting, the local campaigning organisation.

 

The exhibition is accompanied by a series of talks and workshops, some required booking at:
