This exhibition features three groupings of porcelain sculptures by artist Kimberly Chapman: Bridled Women, Elsie’s Arsenal and the Refugee Series. There is a history of disinformation and false claims being used against women. This exhibition centers on what’s left behind after terrible things happen through the lens of women and children. The eerie, delicate white porcelain sculptures shed light on these dark topics. The artwork calls upon past experiences as well as emotionally charged sociopolitical issues for its content. By exploring topics like silencing women, the danger of the refugee plight and domestic violence, viewers are given an opportunity to contemplate such prevalent issues in today’s contemporary culture.
Exhibition runs through Nov. 7 Coburn Art Gallery
