Zeal, an Exhibition by Fern O Carolan

1st July 2016

Aire Place Studios is proud to present Zeal, a solo show by Fern O Carolan aiming to explore the history of cultural construction of feminine identity, and how it has contributed a persistent desire by women to transcend what nature has given them. The exhibit aims to examine women’s efforts to fulfill these representations, how they can lead to feelings of guilt, and the simultaneous assertion of individual power with the creation of a ‘feminine mystique’. Throughout the show the work sets out to encourage fascinating dialogue spanning across decades, media and identities.
