Title: Oh Jemima
In this exhibition each artist has responded through discussion, thoughts and ideas on how shame maybe situated within a creative context.
Nabod’s preparatory studies are an amalgamation of drawings and influences from lyrics of a folk song and an image from tapestry of a historical battle Fishguard in the 1700s. The tapestry celebrates a historic heroine defending her territory. She was intrigued by the image of a central figure commanding the space holding a pitchfork. Seen in a contemporary sense this image can portray uncomfortable questions about the effects of locality on behaviour and Xenophobia particularly fear of losing identity.
