Linda Aloysius is an artist and university lecturer, with a special interest in how the visual fragmentation of woman’s body in art relates to a larger politics of divisionism – for example, the partitioning and segmentation of countries, labour forces, wealth and genders (to name but a few) in order to exert patriarchal control and advance neo-liberalism
Working primarily in sculpture, Aloysius’ practice also spans the disciplines of writing, photography and, on occasion, performance. Her work identifies and critiques obvious and hidden instances of fragmentation and their underlying politics. She aims to challenge and subvert instances of patriarchal fracturing and to encourage this amongst others. Her interest in Motherhood stems from her experiences in that role and her awareness of the longstanding, unequal – but oddly still lawful – division of reproductive labour between genders.
