The (Un)Holy Trinity by Laura Jean Healey

The (Un)Holy Trinity, created for International Women’s Day 2020, examines the notion of the ‘fallen woman’. Inspired by the Pre-Raphaelite painting, such as John Collier’s Lilith and Franz Stuck’s The Sin, the work explores the stories of female figures; Lilith, Salome and Eve, who have been labelled as ‘defiant’ with their ‘unwomanly’ independence and power.

Laura Jean Healey’s art practices have been addressing femininity and re-evaluating female image by challenging the stereotypes of women captured in the lens. The mythical female figures are recurring in Healey’s work. The Siren, a digital performance art film, also presents a provocative visual inspired by the Siren questioning who is in control of the gaze: the watcher or the watched.

Healey’s collection recently released on Sedition, The Siren’s call also sheds light on the sexual interpretation of women and asks about the dynamics of the gaze.
