Thought I’d share this stunning early image of ‘Sanctae’; the new body of work by my friend and wonderful artist Ione Rucquoi.
‘Sanctae’ is a large scale photographic installation consisting of 28, 8ft x 3ft panels, dedicated to dance artist Niki Pollard (1974 – 2010). It examines women’s deep emotional relationshhip with life and consequent closeness to death. It commemorates loss of the self in the metamorphoses in women’s lives, e.g. from woman to mother, and looks at how women’s bodies are historically and emotionally entangled within patterns of subjugation and objectification.
