Consumed: Stilled Lives
Dawn Woolley’s artwork is a feminist critique of consumer culture. She examines representations of gender in popular culture to draw attention to stereotypes. Sculpted objects – made with a variety of materials including concrete, rubbish, blancmange, and rotting meat – function as portraits of different types of consumer. We are what we consume. She also creates public domain interventions in physical commercial advertising spaces in cities and in virtual ones on online social networking sites.
