Peeling Potatoes in Paradise/ Mustn't Waste Time by Claire Collison
Silent Health, Women, Health and Representation, Stills Gallery, until 18 May. Topical in the month that Labour
spearhead a Ministry at Women to give ‘
voice to ‘the missing culture‘, this exhibition initiated by Camerawork (London) examines women’s attitudes to their health.
As you enter the gallery, twenty-tour colour portraits oi iortysomething women stare out at you. Melanie Friend‘s very striking photographic
portraits are accompanied by
statements which reveal diverse
reactions to the menopause: ‘tell them it's hell’, an ‘invisible disability’. For another woman ‘taking HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) telt like regaining control’. Portraits and taped monologues by Anna Raebum, Barbara Cartland and Kailash Purl draw out the emotional and physical stresses at ageing tor women.
Claire Collison’s response to the vulnerability at health is to use symbolic imagery in photo-montages.
She creates a shrine to Faith, Hope, Charity and Seitishness; each icon presents a lemale torso containing haunting images oi children, school and hospital. Hertwo large photographs, ‘Peeling Potatoes in Paradise’ and ‘Reconciiiation’ are also intriguing. in sharp contrast is Kate Musseiwhite’s conirontational sabotage at media images; she uses the advertisers’ billboard or magazine to challenge women’s acceptance oi standard views on sex and health. Janice Howard addresses the mythical images at temininity in a photo-installation which recalls a stone circle. The repeated image oi a chair is decorated with the garbs oi woman as carer (a nurse’s uniiorm) or as witch (pokey hat and cloak). This is indeed a thought-provoking exhibition, and the lack oi biographical iniormation about the contributors underscores the tact that their main concern is the message.
