A sharp political message emblazoned on a cheeky spectacle.
The ever-inventive Ellie Anglin is crafting a huge banner out of felt, tassels and sequins! The work — an homage to the title of a 1992 song by feminist punk band Bikini Kill — riffs on the use of banners as protest art while elevating traditionally feminine creative disciplines and perceived tacky, cheap or kitschy materials to fine-art status.
Ellie Anglin is a multimedia artist and writer. Her work addresses themes of gender, sexuality, nature, folk art and pop culture. RESIST PSYCHIC DEATH is inspired by the many women-identified artists who inform her on-going work, including her mother (a master quilter), textile artist Allyson Mitchell, and Kathleen Hannah — front-woman of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre, and a pioneer of Riot Grrrrl and feminist zine culture.
