“Barbara Cuerden’s Primate Series takes an eco-feminist approach to the human place relative to ‘nature’. This approach sees that patriarchal worldview which enacts a violent and suppressive attempt to control women and their bodies, to be the same force that seeks to dominate and subdue ‘nature’. In her larger body of work, she addresses the tensions between the felt rupture and intense connectivity to the other-than-human world.” curator, Cynthia Myktyshyn
