26th January – 10th February
“Bad Woman” is a multimedia installation by NYC based, Ukrainian-born, Australian-raised artist Katya Grokhovsky. The project explores politics of defiance and protest to the prescribed societal idea of femininity, domesticity and the male gaze, through investigation of the vulnerable, the unstable, the emotional, hysterical and the failing body by employing combinations of sculpture, found objects, video and performance. The exhibition attempts to discredit the oppressive patriarchal construct of contemporary womanhood. Grokhovsky’s interdisciplinary process-based practice combines sculpture, performance, video, painting and drawing and explores issues of gender, labor, alienation and the self, often employing the body as a tool to weave together the personal and the political.
