Episode 65: Penny Slinger
The work of artist Penny Slinger includes photography, collage, film and sculpture. Slinger emerged out of the tumult of the 1960s. Like many of her generation, she went on a quest for personal freedom and sexual liberation. Penny, channeled these journeys and desires into her collages and sculptures. All of these works are rooted in a visual language that Penny describes as 'feminist surrealism'. This language is used to explore and investigate notions of the feminine subconscious and psyche. Penny is her own muse and in many works she uses her own body to examine the relationship between sexuality, mysticism and femininity. In 2017 Director Richard Kovitch released the documentary Penny Slinger: Out of the Shadows. The documentary is an enthralling examination of Penny's amazing life and work.
