Welcome to ‘Chicks Dig It’
C.D.I aims to recreate and highlight, on a local scale, issues for women in our public sphere. The focus is on women in ‘Third Places’, or the lack of, being careful not to fetishise and/ or patronise their involvement- instead recognising them and involving them based on the individual not the gender. I focus on reclaiming fetishised female icons and imagery of women in male dominated spaces (i.e. girls in racing jumpsuits, 70’s sci-fi babes etc) reappropriating them to apply them to images of strength and leadership.
