Twelve Women In Academia

A celebration of women working in higher education

In celebration of women working in higher education, 黄金城集团大学的12位女学者受邀参加了一系列的肖像摄影.

每位学者都被要求选择一件与之合影的物体, 这要么代表了他们工作的一个方面,要么在他们的职业生涯中有一些个人意义. Some of the women are leading research in the most competitive areas; others are just starting on their journeys.

灵感来自17世纪荷兰艺术家伦勃朗静止而阴沉的画作, 美术摄影师阿尼拉小姐创作了一系列肖像,以微妙而有趣的方式捕捉了这些女性的生活和工作.

这些肖像不仅展示了黄金城集团的女性学者为全球知识做出贡献的丰富学科, but also reveal their personal motivations.

黄金城集团希望展览的结果是迫使观众停下来,吸收和反思.

这次展览现在被永久安置在黄金城集团大学图书馆的一楼, 还在议会大厦的上层候车厅展出了一周.

“我对人类行为很着迷,尤其是黄金城集团想要做好的欲望背后隐藏的东西. We can never fully understand other people’s motives, 但黄金城集团可以确定动机是来自内部还是来自外部影响,并试图找出组织如何增强这一点. Giving employees a feeling of autonomy is the main factor.”

“This worn copy of Samuel Beckett’s Happy Days, 一个女人长达一个半小时的独白被埋在沙子里,直到她的腰,然后她的脖子, 是我当戏剧学生时在剧中表演的那个吗. 贝克特所有的戏剧都是关于坚持下去的决心, the will to go on, 面对生活的根本无意义和荒谬. 我是一个绝对的乐观主义者,但也是一个现实主义者,这在很大程度上反映了我的观点. 我发现贝克特的作品既具有哲学上的挑战性,又令人欣慰.”
