Problem Collective is a an all-female group of feminist artists dedicated to cultivating and strengthening the female art community. We are here to support female artists, incite discussion, and inspire action. Why is the death of a female artist romantic? Why is the concept of the dead woman—from Millais’ Ophelia to Lana Del Rey’s 27 Club envy—seductive? She Is a Problem is a devised theatrical1685-409919a93e3432898fdb2a8058cc97d1 experience that explores these questions through the lives and works of Francesca Woodman, Unica Zurn, Sylvia Plath, Diane Arbus and Kay Sage; five extremely different artists, united by their choice to commit suicide. In an immersive, gallery setting, audiences are given a close and intimate examination of these artists’ creative splendor and psychological struggle. We set out to examine the life cycle of the female artist and aim to restore the female creation myth through bolstering the image of Woman as Creator as opposed to primarily Muse.
