About: Sarah Maloney’s Pleasure Ground: A Feminist Take on the Natural World
Sarah Maloney reconsiders Western history and culture through a feminist lens. Using natural, botanical, and bodily forms as references to gender, pleasure, desire, and power, her practice investigates the nature of what is “constructed.” Working across a variety of media ranging from embroidery to bronze, Maloney challenges ideas of “women’s work,” craft, and artistic labour.
