For Contemporary Art Month, Flax Studio will focus on the female centric photography and video work of emerging artist India Treat. Tell Me What It Feels Like and Rituals opened on March 2, 2018 and will close with an artist talk on March 31st at 3pm. The show is comprised of a series of portraits and a video installation addressing the artifice of female identity.
About the Exhibition:
Frustrated with the media’s depiction of women as one-dimensional bodies, India Treat was compelled to ask women to speak their personal truth and expose their feelings of power through portraiture. This work is an exploration of their answers.
The artist talk on Saturday, March 31st will be an opportunity to speak to the artist about her creative process and hear about her method of depicting the ways in which women feel authentic and in-control when captured in an image. We will discuss the position of the artist, the muse and the viewer and their role in re-defining female standards of beauty and power.
