This Material Girl film forms part of an on-going dialogue, which includes photography and performance. Material Girl splits between the personal and the archetypal.
Material Girl is like a mask that covers the body with material but this mask reveals rather than conceals. Prompting questions such as “How do the forces we struggle with reveal ourselves?”
Material Girl has been a vehicle to explore feminine consciousness and the challenge to break free from oppressive patterns of thought and behavior. She is an emerging entity, an unknown, evolving through conversation, bringing dialogue, creative resistance, joy and beauty.
To reflect the importance of dialogue and the way Material Girl allows a space for other women to connect to their creativity, I’ll be recording a podcast of conversations about Material Girl with young women from the Dream Of Life London project and other artists.
