Corin Sworn, Arms!, 2012
Giclee print, newspaper, water colour and gouache, 43 cm (w) x 58 cm (h), edition of 20.
“A friend suggested that I read Landscape For a Good Woman by the sociologist Carol Steedman. The Glasgow Women’s Library was the only public library with it in their holdings – so off I went to borrow that copy.”
“Steedman examines her own upbringing in working class London in order to point out the inadequacies of various theoretical lenses used to study marginal figures. In reflection of her work, Arms! plays with layering to suggest the loss of the specific in amassing the multiple.”
