Vivid Live presents new work from artists Priya Saujani and Grace A Williams to be exhibited as part of SYN.

SYN explores the dynamics of female empowerment, resistance and violence through the iconography of the mythical, offering a confrontational interrogation of stereotypes relating to the sinning female body.

Priya Saujani’s ‘Forbidden Fruit’ weaves a narrative of sexual freedom vs. sexual violence and social etiquette in Indian communities through photography, poetry and performance; exploring thoughts on the Indian female body throughout art and history. Grace A Williams’ ‘Maiden Voiced’ takes the allegory of the sea siren as a subversion of female silencing presenting a performative transmission of voice through sound.
