“Contra” is an exhibition which brings together for the first time, the photographic and film work of Claire Kern and (2013 Photoart graduate) Jorden Williams in a new installation at Arcade Cardiff.
“Contra” opens Wednesday 5th February 6pm till 8pm at Arcade Cardiff.
“Contra” unites Kern and Williams’ shared concern with current socio-political factors that affect female sexuality, fertility and the choices and welfare of women today.
Their commentary is far-reaching and delivered with a sense of urgency and activism. Kern presents Silent Genocide, a series of photographs and texts documenting the heart-rending stories of women from Tibet living in India, facing potentially life-threatening sterilization procedures. Whilst Williams mines and questions the Western systems and values placed on contraceptive drugs that affect those a little closer to home, in her video work and installation, The Doctored Oath.
