Expectations drawn irom Sam Ainslie’s title ‘Why I Choose Bed . . .' herlirst one-woman show which opened at Third Eye Centre Iastweek, are iuliilled. The gallery is hot with the colour. Bed dominates the huge canvas cut-outs.
At either end oi the long room, towering Warrior Women present themselves in the lead roles olthe installation which, though billed as an exhibition, has all the appearance oi a theatrical event. These alternative ‘pillars oi society’ —the poet, the writer, the artist, the mother and the lover—stand in the wings in lull costume. 0n the iloor live cloaks lie empty like husks, their scarlet uniiorms oi bondage. Or perhaps only waiting to be worn in action, a luture struggle.
Between the Warriors, a seventy-loot canvas mural provides a backdrop tor the stage with built-in action. ‘Woman in Bed conironts her own Bellectlon’ is a portrait oi the artist and her own light tor liie. It has evidently not been an
easy journey so iar. There are prickly cacti, throttling cords, bleeding hearts and broken images along the way. The thrust is iorward to the luture until the iinal iigure in red is reached. Though her hand is raised triumphantly her way seems uncertain. Are the ropes and weights around her loosening or
landscapes. Sir Geoffrey Shakerley visited museums and archaeological sites and Snowdon brought together the people.

The glittering prizes ofone man‘s wealth shown under one roof. The
holding her back?
On many levels this is an exhibition oi association. Like a badge it wears red as a triggerioranger, ilame, blood, passion, politics, danger, love. It is a woman’s red. Stitched and cut in canvas, it honours traditions oi the past when lives were sewn into patchwork quilts. Artistic and cultural inspiration abound. The cut oi Matisse, the outline oi Dubuiiet, the sash oi the kimona and the drama oi Lorca's characters play
surrounding park offers a taste of the country.

The accompanying catalogue acts as script and guide to the show and its associations. But something is missing. The live periormers. To some extent visitors iuliil this role, but the set begs tor the real thing. On the opening night a group oi dancers (Catalyst) provided that extra dimension. It is to be hoped that the event will be repeated beiore the exhibition closes. (Alice Bain)
