CHERRIE BOMB – the affect of the male on the female is Umuzi’s First Thursdays exhibition which kicked off in Cape Town at Clarke’s on Bree street on May 3, 2018 and is now making its debut in Johannesburg - Braamfontein on the 5th of July 2018, where the conversation will be expanded further.
Cherrie Bomb explores the subject of Patriarchy, not as a trending or seasonal issue, but as a plight that women and girls have to face every day. The exhibition will serve as a platform that shares real life stories of cruelty, abuse, manipulation and betrayal all in the name of patriarchy.
Typically, in a man’s world, the female is like a type of currency; a chameleon with a beautiful, multi layered, adaptable hard skin. Much to the woman’s dismay, the insensitivity of the male is justified by the fact that they were raised that way, with little to no empathy and a lack of understanding for their counterpart’s feelings. Above all, the male ignorantly takes reign as the superior being who often decides the female’s destiny.
Some of the elements up for interrogation in the exhibition include: behind every strong man there is a powerful women; every broken man must not have felt love from his mother; and women who are sexually assaulted must have been asking for it.
Patriarchy is a systemic issue that needs to be confronted individually. Cherrie Bomb asks even the caring, compassionate man to confront his part in this global inequality and to participate in a conversation that will place male & female on level ground while carving a more considered future for the next generations.
Please join the Umuzi community as we explore the female experience and expression of patriarchy on the 5th of July at First Thursdays in Braamfontein.
