Partially Severed is a solo exhibition of new work by Samantha Wall.

The opening will be held on Thursday, September 6, 6-8pm.

In the exhibition, Samantha presents a series of drawings that use the female body as a site of struggle between subjective narrative and representations of women in Asian horror cinema. Her work is an attempt to reconcile two opposing cultural identities.
