The Hidden Sex

Exhibition and Shows

31 Jan 2019 to 16 Mar 2019

Solo exhibition by Julie Ryder, exploring creative ways of using seaweed as a medium for artistic expression and incorporating natural dyes and threads for further embellishment. Botanical and algae collections were a popular pastime for women in the 19th century, and their drawings or paintings are an inspiration for the artist who uses them as a contemporary metaphor for gender inequality. Ryder also pays homage to the Victorian passion for science, seaweed and botany from the women’s point of view, with a series of wall pieces that will include digital prints in the way of large glass microscope slides.
