12 September – 8 November 2015

The artist’s preparatory drawings and sketches for this monumental oil painting made for the exhibition explore the public lives of women as a procession of feminist images. She draws women and searches their body language in public spaces for gestures “of fear, of shame, or surrender.” Imagery in these sketches records women standing in a line, silent, clad in Kerala saris or burkas, watched by two men in uniform with awful sticks, the silent horror of a limp body at the head of the line, women and men standing around a fire.
