Description

“Virgin Mother Whore … Woman”, a work of music and visual art, explores the interpretation of what is female through a three way lens. It plays with the connections and misconnections between lust, love and power between the sexes. Richly influenced by jazz, rock, and traditional Irish music, it playfully pokes at, or blatantly challenges, society’s perception of female roles and personal beliefs. The story telling within echoes with the sean nós of our ancestors. This project challenges the concept of the feminine as the fairer sex; it observes how we treat our lovers and the misinterpretations in communication between us; it finds hope in the hopelessness of death and the life cycle; it renews and repents. Themes at play in the work are "The Apple" and its relationship in folklore with women, pure, fertile and wicked; "The theme of three", of trinity;"The life cycle" and nature versus nurture, that we become what we see, what is put upon us; What is "natural" compared with what is not.
