HENRIETTA ARMSTRONG, MAFALDA FIGUEIREDO, ALEXIS SOUL-GRAY & OLIVIA STRANGE
'I TOOK MY POWER IN MY HAND'
4th - 13th March 2022
1 Bilton Square, Margate, CT9 1EE
‘I took my Power in my Hand’ is a group exhibition featuring the works of Mafalda Figueiredo, Alexis Soul-Gray, Olivia Strange and Henrietta Armstrong, presented by Liminal Gallery. Spanning painting, sculpture and mixed media works, the all femme exhibition centres on reclamation of ones Power. Each of the artists have been selected due to their powerful practice; thought provoking artworks which take space unabashedly.
The title is taken from an Emily Dickinson poem of the same name, which speaks of the poet taking on the World. Similarly, all four of the artists unpack the expectations society has of a woman through their own lens or historically. Taking the World by the horns, the artists each confront the viewer head on, with unyielding yet intimate insights.
‘I took my Power in my Hand’ will be the debut physical exhibition of Liminal Gallery, founded in early 2021 with a series of innovative online solo exhibitions. Liminal represents emerging and mid-career artists working across the UK and Ireland today, showcasing the internationality and wealth of talent currently practicing in the countries, with a special focus on equal representation and diversity.
Alongside the exhibition will be a series of talks with the artists, tours of the exhibition by the curator and a school programme. The exhibition will also form a fringe event of Power of Women Thanet, an annual festival which coincides with International Womens Day and supports the cultural activities of local female creatives.
The exhibition will open with the Private View on 4th March from 4pm-8pm, which is kindly sponsored by Old Dairy Brewery. The show will continue until 13th March and opening times are Monday - Saturday 12pm-6pm and Sundays 12pm-5pm.
