Girl Space presents GODDESS: a group exhibition at The Mill
The ancient goddesses of varying mythology are often regarded as the reason for existence of water, of crops and harvest and of the human race. From the ancient Greek goddess of spring and re-birth, Persephone, to the indigenous Australian mother goddess, Kunapipi, women in mythology are heralded as heroes – strong, wise and of eternal importance. Yet, often when depicted in art, we see these heroes from a male gaze and not as the strong, raw women they were. These goddesses were also often mistreated and subjected to heinous acts of abuse and violence.
This exhibition will show these goddesses in all of their human glory – as wmn with strength, weakness, power, determination and courage. It will also showcase our current goddesses – the wmn in modern times who have shown us the qualities of the goddesses of ancient times.
Works by Bri Puckridge, Clare Macpherson, Georgia Ruehlemann and Sarah Burley
