SUPPLEMENT is a series of seven single folded broadsides by John Dowd. Each collages a set of images that address a chosen topic: SUMMERTIME, PERFORMANCE, WRIST WATCH, EARTH, SUN, SOLO, and SPECIAL. Sourced from a variety of media, they are reassembled to build new narratives.
WRIST WATCH SUPPLEMENT looks at the representation of women in the media, in particular 1960s fashion ads, promotional materials for girl groups like The Shirelles, and a still from Disney's Sleeping Beauty in which Princess Aurora poses in a cape, both hands on her hips. In each, women are well-groomed and well-dressed--and highlighted for their appearances--but have been removed from the original context in which their beauty was praised.
