Polly Nor Talks Mental Health
Polly Nor title of her new exhibition 'It’s Called Art Mum, Look It Up'
What I love about her work is that it is a conscientious on the manner by which we speak online about mental health, emotional turmoil and the struggle for self-love. This specifically encompasses women and how we portray ourselves and our sexuality on social media and how we are seen (this is my understanding anyway!). As Polly Nor says in her own words: “Sex and sexuality are a big part of human life and a subject matter that has always been very prevalent in our art and culture. I think despite us all being used to seeing sexually objectifying imagery of women in everything from our art to our pornography, it is still often treated as a taboo for a woman to openly express her sexuality.
