Zoë Buckman - BLOODWORK
Tue-Fri: 10-6pm; Sat: 11-6pm
Pippy Houldsworth Gallery is delighted to present BLOODWORK, the first UK solo exhibition of London-born, Brooklyn-based artist Zoë Buckman.
Buckman’s practice takes an explicitly feminist and activist approach. Often reacting to issues pervasive in patriarchal society, her work explores experiences of gendered violence and trauma, both from a personal and social perspective.
Working predominantly with embroidery on vintage textiles, Buckman brings together elements of old and new, highlighting the shared and cross-generational nature of these experiences. With an emphasis on joy, exultation and resilience, Buckman’s work offers up the premise that sisterhood and the spiritual concept of the divine feminine can act as an antidote to suffering itself.
