The future is female – and so is the past, as depicted by these portraits of girls as unlikely warriors. Together, they boldly reframe the histories of iconic women through the centuries.
We Will Slam You With Our Wings is a video and sound installation of seven hanging screens, representing a series of 19th century imperialistic portraits. Instead of the lavish depiction of men, an army of young girls aged 8 to 16 each stand in her own frame, in her own regalia and holding her own stance of power. Dudley is their mentor, encouraging the girls to take autonomy over their own voices and to create the world afresh.
