LADY, LADY proposes an experience into a female universe built up by the personal journeys of three female artists from different countries within the Southern Africa region.
The three artists share, search, explore and exchange their realities together in order to give voice to various commonalities, challenges & images. It is a commentary on current issues facing women in general.
The work questions the image, value attributed to and the objectification of women by challenging, sometimes highlighting preconceived ideas of what a women is, or should be.
