‘Daintifyt, esforç y delicadesa’, Festival Miradas de Mujers,

Daintifyt, esforç i delicadesa

lesleyfinalB copia

Last year I won a prize for my work from Fem Art, this prize was the opportunity to have a solo exhibition at Ca la Dona. The exibition also coincides with the national festival ‘Miradas de Mujer’ focussing on woman artists working in Spain organized by MAV.

The exhibition, ‘Daintifyt, esforç i delicadesa’  was inspired by my work on ‘Daintifyt Revisited’ a shared history project that I worked on in Cookstown, Northern Ireland in 2008.

‘Daintifyt’ was manufacturer of bras and corsets in Northern Ireland. The factory employed many women, for them this factory represented an opportunity to earn a wage from their abilities as machinists and needleworkers. The disappearance of Daintifyt and other similar factories (eased out by the multinationals) has also meant that a form of work, a type of friendship and a workplace complicity is in danger of being forgotton.

About Lesley Yendell

Hi, I am an English sculptor based in Spain. I have worked on various projects around Europe. My work draws both from the domesticated landscape of the Penedes, and everyday domestic objects. It concentrates on the transformation of these objects and introduces new criteria to value not only their aesthetic effect but also their communicative power.
