For this event we have invited acclaimed photographer Jannica Honey to extend her insight into her latest exhibition: When the Blackbird Sings. Her compelling work depicts naked women of all ages as well as poetic shots of flowers in water. The subjects are family, friends and acquaintances of the artist posing outdoors at twilight. Honey shot the fascinating images over the course of a year, exclusively on every full and new moon, starting at the October 2016 Supermoon.
After Jannica shares the motivations around this body of work we will hold a discussion, lead by Vicky Allan, journalist for The Herald, with an esteemed panel of guests including Honey, Danni from The Chachi Power Project and others to focus on the power of women's bodies’, their spirituality and the oppression which surrounds them.
N.B. When the Blackbird Sings is named after the bird which signals twilight with a song; while shooting the series Honey was stricken by the song’s memento mori-undertones. The resulting photographs unveil lyrical still lifes alongside delicate moments of tenderness and unashamed femininity, and celebrate the beauty of the female form at every age.
