The Long Black Wig Project

BY BECKY EDDY PHILLIPS
@ VOL 5 ON DEC 01, 2015

“Recall the idiom Everything But the Kitchen Sink…This is NOT that space.”

In The Long Black Wig Project from PechaKucha Night Bryan’s 5th Volume Speaker Becky Eddy Phillips rhythmically details a her multimedia artistic piece. The Long Black Wig Project enters contemporary plots in art, science, domesticity, mothering, and feminism. Using art like a verb, it wavers in leaps and falls between the intellectual and domestic realms. At the same time, the work is introspective, balancing the overlapping (though historically antithetical) realms of mother and artist: how to stay connected to art depends on the artists connectivity to her children. An ambitious multi-media exhibit, it is contained within A Vacuous Space.

A multitude of video vignettes are projected within it’s relative space. With titles such as Miss Sara Tonin’s Fancy and My Feminism Hurts My Marriage, the imagery is strangely eerie with a feminine edge as if there were an invisible link to the past lives of women associated with Surrealism. A long wig is seen throughout the work and acts as a connective fiber.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016.

Feminism and Equity! What are the real issues?

BY JENNIFER AZIH
@ VOL 40 ON MAY 10, 2019

Jennifer Azih addresses general misconceptions about feminism, female genital mutilation, gender-based violence, rape, child marriage, and girl child deprivation of education.

Many people are afraid to be called feminists or even associated with it. This is because the topic has been politicized and many people do not even understand its true meaning.

As a woman, Jennifer would like to educate people on the real issues of feminism that are constantly being neglected.

She thinks that it is important to change people’s perspective and stimulate real support to the feminist movement.
