First Friday Lecture: Use of the Female Body in Art and Craft by Anastasia Pindera

The female body has been represented in art for centuries, mainly by male artists. This presentation will explore the use of the female body—symbolically and physically—by woman-identifying fine art and craft-based artists. How do these artists articulate the female body and how does this impact the work?

Anastasia Pindera’s contemporary metalwork aims to challenge social conventions and encourage conversations and empowerment. She creates jewellery and large-scale wearable objects, which evolve into installations that incorporate photography. The body is the subject in her work, which examines gender, sexuality, and Western beauty ideals. Pindera received her BFA from NSCAD University in 2018 and has exhibited work internationally.
