Hannah Raisin, Strawberry Sunday, 2010, single channel video, 30 sec, edition of 3 + 1 A/P
Hannah Raisin’s video work, Strawberry Sunday, is showing in the MARS Gallery bathroom until 20 December.
‘Women don’t shit.’ These words were etched into my memory after being told this years ago by a fellow teenager. Strawberry Sunday humorously plays out this vision, imagining what secretions would be celebrated emitting from an ‘ideal’ woman.
Originally made for the show The View From Here: 19 Perspectives on Feminism, this work unpacks a desire to at once allure and repulse – creating an opportunity for the viewer to question what it is they are looking at and how the looking makes them feel.’
