Age Becomes Her, 3rd-6th Dec

62

Age Becomes Her 3 – 6 December 2019
Invitation to Private View 5 pm Wed 4 December 2019


Cultural narratives and representations of ageing have produced post-menopausal women as disadvantaged and overlooked subjects. This feminist investigation into representations of scarred, aged female bodies explores the possibilities for re-imagining ageing as woman and artist. Interwoven with this is an examination of the aesthetics and cultural narratives of illness with a focus on the scarring left after treatment for breast cancer. The work investigates becoming and accumulating as well as loss and decay.
This approach to ageing is unique in that it takes the erotic old woman seriously, combining attention to formal aesthetics with anarchic humour.


Opening hours: 12:00 – 18:00 Monday – Friday. Open Late on Thursday until 19:00
Grosvenor Gallery, Manchester School of Art, Grosvenor Building, Cavendish St, Manchester M15 6BR
