Knots & Nerves / by Anna Madeleine

In April 2016 I exhibited with Amelia Thompson and Alana Sivell in Knots & Nerves at M16 Artspace. The show explored our experiences as young women artists with work based around textiles, fashion, text, and mixed media works made with found objects such as flowers, matchsticks and fabric. While visually decadent, these materials contradict underlying themes of intense physical and emotional sensations, such as violence, anger and grief. Through these shared practices, the works in Knots and Nerves coalesce to break apart expectations of the feminine that often contradict encounters of anxiety, pain and simmering, heart-pounding rage.
