"Violence Grows provides a forceful, wide-ranging look at four female icons of the 1980s. Its four-step journey focuses on three punk artists and one divisive politician, all of whom re-shaped ideas on identity, sexuality, and the role of women in a dysfunctional society. These four determined women set out to overturn the world they lived in. The confrontational content of Violence Grows examines a patriarchal elitist system and shows how culture can subvert it, using material from the archive of The Mott Collection." [artist statement].
