'THE PLEASURES WE FEEL'
19th April - 10th May 2022
3 Works for 3 Weeks Series
Liminal Gallery is delighted to present ‘The Pleasures We Feel’ an online solo exhibition by Olivia Strange. Witch-like talons, breasts, tentacles and oysters intermingle in Strange’s multi-disciplinary works, celebrating the physicality of touch and engaging new dialogues around queer sensuality and sexuality. They hinge on a sense of intimacy and desire, the deliciously edible and the grotesque.
A celebration of the feminine in all its reality, the works give a visual to the queer experience, its graphic content serving to reject the patriarchal ideals imposed on society as to what a woman must and should be. Soft pink cake-like columns lull the viewer in with promises of sweetness, only to be confronted by women baring their all in the throws of ecstasy, demon-like as they succumb to pure pleasure.
‘The Pleasures We Feel’ forms part of an ongoing series entitled 3 Works For 3 Weeks, an innovative take on the traditional solo exhibition promoting slow looking and true engagement with the artist, the artworks and the concepts behind them. Each exhibition in the series features 3 artworks alongside text and detail images to give an intimate insight. The exhibitions run for just 3 weeks and all invited artists are either national or international, but are currently working within the UK and Republic of Ireland, to show the breadth and diversity of art available across the countries.
Each Tuesday at 10am throughout the duration of the exhibition, Liminal Gallery will release a new artwork accompanied by text and detail images onto the dedicated Viewing Room found on www.liminal-gallery.com.
