Covenant I was a part of a group exhibition A Woman in her place USA, El Dorado, Wichita: Kansas, Emory: Virginia 2015-17. The theme of the exhibition was to explore female identity and the place of women in society. The brief included a slip, a female undergarment, which was to be used to make an artwork and a quote by Rebecca Solnit, ‘a slip is something that no one sees you wearing but that changes the appearance of what everyone sees’.
For this artwork I transformed the slip into a sliptie that hung in the gallery amongst other artists works, preceding this on entry was an invite card that was a picture of me wearing the tie.
The original photograph is by Lorna Milburn. ‘She slips form grasp.’ is printed on the opposite side.
