Fionn Wilson (curator and artist) explains: “My sex, my self is an exploration of sexuality and sensuality from 14 women artists via self portraiture. Oscar Wilde wrote: Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power. Women affirming themselves sexually and claiming ownership of their individual sexuality is a powerful thing. This exhibition is an exuberant and honest celebration and examination of ourselves as sexual beings, in a world where the expression of sexuality as a woman can still be seen as controversial, threatening or even subversive.”
