Artist Zoë Buckman is in fight mode. Her own boxing gloves figure in recent mixed media installations, spoken word, sound art and public art projects that defend women’s reproductive rights. This episode is an excerpt from the 3 Dec 2016 Fresh Art International show on Untitled, Radio during Miami Art Week 2016.
British born, the New York based multi-disciplinary artist explores themes of feminism, mortality, and equality. We discovered her work at the Pulse art fair. In Champ, she joins a pair of her own boxing gloves with a neon diagram of the uterus in poetic response to the attack on Planned Parenthood in the United States. A continuation of her ongoing series Mostly It’s Just Uncomfortable, the piece raises questions about health care, sex education, and women’s rights, while promoting female positivity.
