The Spare Rib Storyteller is an exhibition of photographs and mixed media, exploring what it means to be a female in today’s world.
The exhibition is presented in three groups of stories. Each provides an insight into parts of a homogenous story of woman’s ‘theatre of life’, the manifestations of desire, fear, love, loss, wisdom, pain and beauty of which it consists. She, the sensuous, liberated woman is, the Spare Rib Storyteller.
The first chapter explores eternal amorous love. The second, sensory beauty of longing, love and loss, and the third is the struggle of living in a female body, subject to societal objectification throughout the ages.
The Spare Rib Storyteller is an engaging and sensuous story of the evolution of every woman.
