Description Deliberately eclectic programme of short performances (singing, dancing, writing or pumping iron) that "blurs the distinction between high and low culture', all created and performed by women reflective of the fact women's art is not a style or movement. The premise of this collection of short works acknowledges "to be a performer is to expose oneself publicly. The artist is not displaced but positioned firmly within her own discourse: both as subject and object" .. and that "women are well accustomed to the role of display or exhibited object, constructed by a patriarchal society".
