ZOË BUCKMAN

Zoë Buckman is a multidisciplinary artist working in sculpture, installation, and photography. At the core of her work is understanding and conveying the complex layers of feminism, mortality and equality. Her work explores the interaction of the delicate and the harsher aspects of women’s anatomical selves with their social presence and roles. Buckman’s upcoming work utilizes reappropriation to explore cultural appropriation and the historical stripping of meaning often produced as byproduct.

 

Most recently, Buckman collaborated with Natalie Frank on a powerful mural in the New York Live Arts Ford Foundation Live Gallery space in response to the election of Donald Trump. The mural utilizes text gathered from statements that former and current male politicians have made about women and their bodies over the last few years along the 31.9 foot long wall.
