Giants is a feminist exploration of dress and adornment.
This exhibition challenges the social order that, still in 2019, often places women second to men and points out misogynistic behaviours that reinforce this order. Giants suggests dress as a universal, non-verbal and accessible language that can be used as a tool to subvert gender conditioning.
The diversity of these hand-made wearables and sculptures relates to the multiplicity and complexity of womankind and are made from an assortment of readily available materials such as fibre, wire, recycled tyre inner tubes, yoga-mats and timber.
