Artist Angela Ellsworth has been getting a lot of attention for her gorgeous and horrifying Seer Bonnets … Angela works from her Mormon background and ancestry to comment on and critique polygamy, forced communal domesticity, and the idea of sister wives. The work re-examines the experience of pioneer Mormons. The first image includes 9 bonnets nodding to Angela’s great, great grandfathers 9 wives.
Reminded of this by photos of Danya Spinners ‘Widow’ going around. Ellesworth does performance and drawing also.
