Sarabande presents an exhibition of works by Shannon Bono, Camilla Hanney and Paloma Tendero. Although they work in very different mediums – sculpture, painting and photography – in their work they all represent the female body, exploring themes of sexuality, body politics and power, and the impact that religion, illness, culture and society has on how we view the female form.
Shannon Bono is a painter whose mission is to advocate for the presence of black bodies; captured through scale, colour and anatomical manipulation. The naked bodies in her work resists the negative colonial stereotype imagery of a black body and she uses African textile culture and background in biochemistry to create the backgrounds of her paintings.
Camilla Hanney is a ceramicist and sculptor who is exploring historical issues surrounding the suppression of women’s desires and sexuality in both art and religion. She examines ways to deconstruct these dated representations of women and rebuild new figures, toying with the tensions lying between beauty and repulsion, curiosity and discomfort, desire and disgust.
Paloma Tendero is a photographer who explores how the DNA we inherit means that we build physical and psychological relationships with others and our bodies; relationships that may that end up defining us completely. Paloma was recently awarded a prize from Photo Fusion and is nominated for a prize at Wellcome Collection.
