From May 8th - June 7th 2014, Soma Contemporary Gallery Waterford will present Bunny Collective: The Young Girl’s Gaze.
This exhibition will explore how young women exist online, and how the internet can be harnessed as a mode of self-expression. Through a variety of mediums including installation, video and photography, the work on display will investigate the ways in which new internet platforms have impacted on female identity, and in turn what it means to present yourself on-line as a female.
Bunny Collective are an all-female art collective originally formed at the Crawford College of Art and Design in September 2013. Since their formation, they have expanded to include a number of UK-based artists and have attracted international interest, including interviews with Dazed and Confused, and Brooklyn-based zine, The Le Sigh.
Bunny Collective: The Young Girl’s Gaze will feature work from a number of emerging artists based in Cork and London. Their work will engage with themes such as identity construction online and alter egos; consumerism; the body as capital; fragmentation of self; teenage obsession; and how the internet can provide a positive alternative to male-dominated areas of artistic tradition. French collective Tiqqun’s seminal text, Preliminary Materials for a Theory of the Young-Girl will offer an important theoretical framework for how each of the artists will approach these issues.

The Coven presents Soapbox. A show ranging in mixed media, saturated with meaning and intent of just what is means to be a female artist in todays society. Subtle differences in the work cite that each piece has been carefully positioned to not only interact with the audience but with each other, adding a sense of humanity to the objects.
The Coven is an internet based all female identified collective and in this show at Gal they’ll showcase works by Hanna Le Feuvre, Liv Thurley, Patricia Alvarado, Samantha Conlon and Sasha Cresdee.
'Re-Introducing Oshun' is “an interdisciplinary exhibition in style of Art Nude, discussing black women's bodies, gender and sexual expression through the lens of the Orisha, Oshun.” Creative director Janine Francois allowed AFROPUNK to premiere some of the images.
She tells them that this series, called ‘Exotic Fruits’, “aims to be a critique of European colonial and anthropological gaze of African women by giving back their agency”. “Featuring an all female collective working within the mediums of movement, visual arts and poetry, ‘Re-Introducing Oshun’ demystifies the omnipresent gaze placed on black women’s bodies by, creating images of black women that look, talk, feel and love like us and in doing so presenting our own truths.”
