Lisa Alembik - Witnesses: Spyder Protector I


My work focuses on our response to violence against women and the silent witnesses in the rooms or landscapes where such crimes take place. I incorporate insects as stand-ins for a witness—or may be the perpetrator of violence. They can represent our irrational fears of six- and eight-legged creatures. Occasionally, they too will succumb and become a victim. There are parallels to how we will turn our gaze away from a woman in need, or blame a woman for the violence that happens to her, to how we are in denial about the global devastation of nature and our planet tilting towards its demise.
