Additional Information

Organic cotton apron featuring an image of Housewives with Steak Knives, by Sutapa Biswas.

Sutapa Biswas made her paint and collage Kali-inspired piece when she was still an undergraduate, and it remains one of her most powerful works. Her ‘housewife’ is shown as the Hindu goddess Kali, whose purpose is to destroy evil to protect the innocent. The garland of heads that Biswas’s Kali wears is made up of dictators, and she carries a flag showing an image of Judith Slaying Holofernes by Artemisia Gentileschi, linking her to a lineage of female artists. The title invokes the power of ‘ordinary’ women everywhere.

The cotton apron has green ties, and measures 82 x 70 cm, making it suitable for a variety of sizes of people who want to bring some avenging energy to their kitchen or studio. It’s part of our exclusive collection celebrating the trailblazing women artists of the 1970s-1990s, in honour of Women in Revolt! opening at Tate Britain.

Sutapa Biswas is a London-based artist whose practice spans painting, drawing, film and time-based media. Her work challenges and explores colonialism and imperialism and their influence on art history, and her time as an undergraduate at the University of Leeds has been cited by her tutor, the art historian Griselda Pollock, as having had a profound impact on the art history curriculum there, starting the ongoing process of its decolonisation.
