Lauren Baker is proud to be unveiling a 3.3metre ‘Lunar Woman Power Totem' at Enfield Winter Lights. The light installation is inspired by esoteric and alchemic traditions, juxtaposing ancient symbolism with contemporary symbolism to explore female identity, strength and power. Totems tend to have spiritual significance and can become an emblem for a community. Contemporary British artist, Lauren Baker, created this totem to celebrate the courage of our ancestors and as a reminder that powerful change is always possible.
“It’s an honour to be commissioned to create an installation in Palmers Green Triangle at the location where the suffragettes fought for women to have the right to vote. This was just over one hundred years ago and now all women can vote in the UK, because of their efforts. Had I been born in that era I’m sure I would have been campaigning with them” - Lauren Baker
The moon in the belly of the totem represents the connection between the feminine and universe, linking to the cosmic elements of the moon, amplifying deeper understanding of our inner selves, authenticity and being in true alignment.
The totem explores balance as a means to achieve a solid relationship to the self, the natural world and the universe. The artist uses ancient and contemporary symbolism to represent unity, truth and strength.
Palmers Green Triangle, Enfield, London, day and night, from 21 Feb until the end of March 2022.
'Lunar Woman Power Totem' is a light installation for Enfield Winter Lights commissioned by Artist Hive Studios.
