Yoke Matze in Pillow Talk


‘Pillow Talk’ conversations with women is a piece dedicated to Tina Modotti.

The work’s title is, “I cannot solve the problem of life by losing myself in the problem of art. Tina Modotti.” Yoke says, “I am inspired by both her commitment to radical causes she showed in her life and the directness of its expression through her photographs.”

The project is staged in a transparent geodesic dome furnished with art pillows by South London Women Artists as seating and a selection of readings, cuttings and ephemera from the Women’s Art Library collection. Visitors are invited to relax, read the material and to interact by sharing their own inspirations and histories which will become part of the archive. These conversations with women contribute to a collective multi-layered memory of women’s art history and highlight the achievements of women artists. The exhibition will tour to different locations in the UK throughout 2016
