COLLAGE ON VIEW
Cut Wife: A Fragmented Life Pieced Together
at Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, Virginia, USA
January 22-March 9 2020
Artist Talk & Reception: February 8, 6-8PM
Dafna Steinberg’s work has spanned a variety of mediums. For close to ten years, she has worked predominantly in collage. She works with themes that relate to the experiences of women and the fragmentation of their bodies. She also makes work about interactions between men and women and how these interactions play out in building relationships and understanding.
Though the catalysts for Steinberg’s projects are personal, the works act as emotional responses to the current political and cultural climate. The subjects of the work cover the objectification of the female body, reproductive rights, domestic violence and continuous attacks on a woman’s right to be autonomous. Using vintage advertisements and images, Steinberg continues to explore how, as much as things change, they still stay very much the same.
