Talia in our Backyard

Talia Shipman

Talia has graced our back doors with a piece from her newest series: 
.

Between A Rock and A Rock - facilitates conversation about the duality of spaces, attempting to reclaim those that have traditionally been hostile towards womxn. The series’ title is two-fold: coming directly from the term “between a rock and a hard place," which by definition means: in difficulty, faced with a choice between two unsatisfactory options. The images literally depict a naked female form in contact with the rocky desert landscape, while calling to the longstanding popular cultural perception of harsh desert as male-dominated space. This references a common practice in visual art—where the female body is treated as landscape—and in history, which has overlooked womxn and marginalized communities at every turn.

Step into Graffiti Alley and take a peek:
