Following a successful exhibition last summer at Centrespace Gallery (as featured on BBC One), Ellen Downes is introducing her second solo exhibition.
This year she will be working with 100 women and non-binary people. She is casting their busts in gold to line the gallery walls like armour. The exhibit, ‘MY BODY, MY HOME’ will share these individual’s stories of sexual assault and harrassment. It will centre around themes of reclamation and empowerment.
She says, “So often women and non-binary bodies are objectified and our voices and agency are taken from us. This exhibition creates objects from our bodies, on our terms.”
