The 126 Artist-Run Gallery Internship has been an amazing experience for me. I've had the opportunity to work alongside emerging and established artists, as well as the welcoming and brilliant 126 board members. I have become so much more knowledgeable of the time management and work that goes into running/organizing a show - and how rewarding it is to see your hard work and effort come together.

We're told to
be innocent,
to be kind and mannered,
to not speak loud,
to sit up straight.

 

(Be quiet, bad girl)

 

We're told to
be sexy,
taught to
define ourselves by
shapes drawn in magazines,
lips pouted
and parted
in pictures,
defining ourselves
by the numbers and names
spoken for us
but
never the ones
we speak for

ourselves.

 

(Be quiet, bad girl)

 

Bodies
made for consumption,
we inhale
picture after picture
creating a hunger
for the intangible
grinding in the stomach
of everybody

but

never leaving them
full.

 

(Be quiet, bad girl)

 

In this open call, we wanted to explore this topic further, from the opposed positions of the phrase ‘bad girl’ from it’s early seed to it’s eventual growth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'd like to thank my good friend Ashley Moloney for allowing us to use her fantastic video work for our open call and promotion posts. You can find more of her work on her vimeo here ; https://vimeo.com/ashleymoloney/videos

 

The response we have had for BDGRL is phenomenal and we wish to continue this project, pushing it further in the near future. Thank you to everyone that attended each fundraiser, who donated, who helped promote us and just overall, the great support. Saffron Lily, Sarah Keenan and myself are more than thankful to everyone for the help in making our BDGRL show a success. 

 

We hope to see you at the 126 Gallery at 7pm on the 8th of December for the opening of BDGRL!

 

 

 

 

WE DID IT!
