acetone veil - Sue Greeff
Bodies are used and loved, admired and exploited, pressured and cherished. Bodies are political, imbued with power and presence – challenging and vulnerable. Over recent years, bodies have regained attention, across media platforms and political debates. The conversation is universal because everybody has a body and every body deserves recognition and respect. From the trial of Brett Kavanuagh to the Handmaid’s Tale and its iconographic uses in protests around the world, the manipulation and representation of womxn's bodies has come into focus. For her solo exhibition with Eclectica Contemporary, Sue Greeff reflects on these topical issues.
With this body of work, Sue Greeff has lifted critical images representative of the feminine which highlight cycles of recurrence and aim to call these dynamics into question. As such, Greeff prompts further thinking through these artworks, with the awareness that there can be no easy outcome, but a hope to bring more people into the crucial and necessary conversations of our time.
