Leg Room, 2016

Overview

Leg Room was a response to Grrrl Power Liverpool's question 'Women; Where do you Find Yourself in the Arts?' It questions the space available to women in the art world and where women fit in the creative sector but also challenges the idea that women in general are taught to take the littlest amount of space possible. We have been encouraged to sit, talk (be quiet), walk; eat like a lady which in other words is shrink yourself down to the minimum. The response was to reverse the roles and have women unapologetically taking up space.
