HUNTER, Alexis; SULLY, Isabelle (ed.)
Unbidden Tongues #8: Feelers
Unbidden Tongues #8: Feelers brings together three photographic series by artist and activist Alexis Hunter. In a storyboard-like fashion, her “photo narrative sequences” forensically detail her manhandling of artefacts of patriarchal oppression through the caressing touch of an array of characters: the Marxist's wife, an interventionist secretary and a manicured mechanic.
Born in New Zealand, Hunter moved to the United Kingdom in 1972 where, at the age of twenty-four, she joined the Women’s Workshop of the Artists Union and invested devotedly in feminist organising alongside her artistic practice. [publisher's note]
