A project in development
Every woman has a story about their breasts, from prepubescent hopes, to the realities of old age, from the joys or frustrations of breastfeeding, to sexualization, from operations and hormones for health or cosmetic issues, to Transgender women feminization. These are women’s stories of embarrassment, pleasure, pain and joy.
This project will investigate the subject of women’s breasts, stories so often disguised in humor and embarrassment. Lois will gather experiences from a wide cross section women, of different ages, and cultural backgrounds. These stories, and Lois’s will be the basis for a new artwork, Breasts, Boobs and Baps.
Workshops will be held with women’s groups, stimulating frank and informed conversations, through opportunities for joyful, creative engaging practical activities. Creative activities and ideas will also be offered remotely, to anyone who wants to join in.
Exhibitions of artwork created will be toured in 3 Breast Clinics, across the UK and on-line.
