SACRIFICE : ione rucquoi at the bowie gallery Totnes

We opened this stunning exhibition on Thursday July 7th and it looks great. Hoorah for reclaiming the white space and for the challenging unmissable work from this young artist. Dealing largely with her experience of the physical and emotional changes that pregnancy and motherhood bring, the artist presents work that will resonate with those who are prepared to extend their mind out of the box of convention. The visceral nature of giving birth overwhelms us in "the offering" - forget the tendency of american woman to have caesarians and avoid the rigours - childbirth is a bloody fight for life and this image is spot on.

exhibition runs until July 16   07956 412 278
