Penelope Project

Immersive installation, performance and workshops collaboration with Helen David

The Penelope Project is an investigation into the politics of gender inequality.
A programme of performance, visual art
and workshops, led by artists Helen David and Isabel Castro Jung.

 

Helen and Isabel explore the continuing issues of gender inequality, that despite #Metoo is still largely prevalent throughout our society.

The Penelope Project aims to enable women of any age to share their experiences by phy-
sically contributing to a growing art installation of painted cloths which will be later incorporated into an exhibition.

 

Performative exercises will reflect these mechanisms in society and develop into a performance piece.

The participants create ‘veils of insults and praise’, ’beds sheets of duties and rights’ and also they  write the names of anonymous women who had an impact on their lives in the  ‘flour box of anonymity’.
