A Short Film By Lois Norman exploring work on Pleasure & the Female Body by Visual Artist, Ope Lori. In She is Juiced: Slice Two - Ope Lori, we explore British Nigerian Visual Artist, Ope Lori’s work, as she highlights the dark corners of online Pornography and the Erotic, re-frames racial and Lesbian stereotypes and lets the concept of desire, the body and pleasure nurture her creativity.
In this slice of film, trailblazing British Caribbean Artist, Sonya Boyce MBE RA and LGBTQIA+ Fine Art Photographer, Ajumu, whose own work reflects Ope’s in the exploration of same-sex desire and the Black body, help pull into focus, an exciting snapshot exploring sexual pleasure and sexuality, gender and difference and… a new way of looking.
This short film is a quarter slice of the Award Winning Documentary 'She Is Juiced', a first feature for Creative Artist Lois Norman which she filmed entirely solo. It celebrates the work and lives of Four LGBTQIA+ Female Identifying Artists. She Is Juiced had it's World Premiere when Lois was invited to screen 'She Is Juiced' at Tate Britain in 2017, both as part of Tate’s ground Breaking Exhibition, Queer Britain and to launch London Pride 2017 and has just won Best Art Film At NRFF Amsterdam, Best Documentary at Brighton Rocks and was a BAFTA Cymru Finalist at Carmarthen Bay Film Festival 2018.
Lois Norman is a British/Australian Creative Artist, whose work focuses on the bravery and diversity of the human condition. Primarily, using the Female word and image as a lens, she explores and questions the truth of who we are and the strength it takes to be all of who we can dare to be. With a career in theatre and the word and a love of Art and the visual, she has developed a form of film that she terms Creative Documentary: a fuse of interview and the tastes of experimental film. As she makes more films, she hopes to develop this practice.
