The (Un)Holy Trinity

Following on from her award-winning project, The Siren - in which she examined the mythical female figure - Laura Jean Healey now dives further into ancient legend to explore the biblical notion of the ‘fallen woman’.

The (Un)Holy Trinity draws inspiration from three legendary ‘unnatural women’: Eve, Lilith and Salome - who through their supposedly unnatural acts of defiance, aggression, or desire for autonomy - have been demonised throughout history to serve as a warning as to how disruptive and destructive female sexuality can be if left unchecked.

The filmed performances seek to not only explore these women in their moment of defiance but, more importantly, to challenge the demonised perceptions of the so-called ‘unnatural’ woman - that have been used to warn women as to the dangers of such desires and/or actions.

Each of the three films celebrate these women for their supposedly ‘unwomanly’ ways and draws upon the moment in which each woman asserts her own will; revealing her true inner strength in order to achieve her own sense of autonomy and defy the traditional, suffocating role that has been allotted to them throughout history. By extension, the films seek to force the audience question why these ingrained perceptions still exist today.

Working in collaboration with Sedition, The (Un)Holy Trinity was launched on the 8th March to celebrate International Woman’s Day 2020.
