dinahvagina | Manslaughter
November 9 - December 3
The intersection between women and male violence is brutal.
An exhibition to coincide with International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women 2021 on November 25th.
dinahvagina is an artist living and working in West Wales. She works in a wide variety of mediums, the themes running through it give it cohesion, focusing on the extremes of the female experience, from orgasmic bliss to domestic murder.
In 2012 I started counting women killed by men in the UK. I had been told there were two a week but I never saw that many in the press so I started looking, searching them out, and I still do. Counting dead women and bringing them together.
