  Izzy Faith V has always been drawn to female villains for precisely the reasons they're vilified - they're independent, sexually autonomous, and defy the roles traditionally delegated to women - namely 'the virgin', 'the housewife', or 'the mother'. Historically, society's discomfort with female figures who deviated from these norms gave rise to mythical beings like the succubus, the siren, and the banshee -- creatures that defied the expectations of submission, modesty, and motherhood, embodying a darker yet deeply feminine force. In the age of The Internet, these narratives find new life. Today, similar fears manifest as memes: the disagreeable older woman becomes 'The Karen', ambitious, childless women put the 'Girl' in 'Gaslight, Gatekeep, Girl Boss', and any woman garnering sexual attention online can expect to be labelled a 'THOT', a 'Baddie', or a 'Pick Me'. This continuation of myth-making around demonised women captivates V, especially in its modern absurdity, showcasing how the internet has become a new battleground for these age-old narratives 

Demonised is a playful probe into female defiance, merging historical monsters with contemporary societal stereotypes to revel in the enduring allure of 'The Bad Girl

Demonised was proudly supported by Creative Victoria, FELLR, and the Honey Bones HI - RES residency program

Honey Bones Gallery - April 5th - 15th 2024

Demonised was my debut solo exhibition, exploring demonised female figures through mythology and memes. All the works and set pieces were created over a two-month period as part of the Honey Bones Gallery HI-RES residency program.
