Joy Gerrard: Image as Protest
Cristea Roberts Gallery
Online Viewing Room:
We are delighted to present four new drawings by Joy Gerrard and an accompanying film which depict recent protest scenes around women’s safety and women’s reproductive rights.
Focusing on the rights and equality of women, Gerrard is interested in how people attempt to make their opposition to an event, or a law, or a political change, visible in the public realm. She explores how to record or remake the event that caused the protest.
“The final state of all these images exists in the eye of the viewer, in how they are received and looked at. Some will see a street scene; others will maybe see a representation of resistance. The image is ephemeral; it was real, but floats through time, materials and optics, never really belonging to any of us.”
– Joy Gerrard
