World’s End New Collection: Goddess
/ 4 August 2016

World’s End has unveiled its latest collection Goddess through its website on August 1 2016. They asked six artists to create pieces portraying a goddess of their choice. The artists describe their visions of a goddes not only as a good mother but also as someone that is hard to understand. Someone that we cannot have. The artists involved are Glyn Smyth (Ireland), Sarah Sheil (Ireland), Riandy Karuniawan (Indonesia), Morrg (Indonesia), Jesse Schaller (USA), and KILAS (Singapore).

Goddess

Since hundreds of years, we often see a lot of women illustrated in paintings through men’s eyes, usually illustrated with an exotic and a submissive look. A lot of artists often portray women to look supple, young, slender and beautiful and all of those portrayals can also be found in any other medias. Women often get the social pressure to see and act in a certain way, as the product of some sexism acts in society. As the sexism in the art world happens a lot, World’s End is having an exhibition with hope that the audience and the artists who are mainly men, question the influence of the objectification of women that have evolved over time and how it finally get in into our lives.

World’s End wants the exhibition to be a calling to every women artists all around Indonesia to send their portfolios or proposals to show their works in World’s End’s gallery.

The exhibition will be held on August 26 2016 at 4 pm at World’s End’s Gallery & Store.

Visit World’s End website to see the artists’ works.
