    Self as Virginia Woolf

    There has been a rather consistent history of fringe artists being regarded as making “outsider art”. Aming them, a vast chunk is reserved for women, who have constantly been put aside when discussing the past’s most meaningful individuals. Nowadays, certain artists who, for a lack of a better subject, depict moments in history limited to the male gaze and filtered through a colourfully misogynistic painterly view, depicting women as simple stand-ins who get pies thrown in their faces. I am here to remind them that women tend to play a role that is far more important than what they choose to showcase, who survive severe trauma and, through sheer mental tenacity change history. I am here to remind them that my generation has no interest in Darwinism for the sake of politics, but of equity for the sake of empowerment.
