L-I-N-G-E-R-I-E nº10

ARTIST STATEMENT:


Women's sexuality has evolved throughout history, seeing the public's vision of what women should be today. It has reached the point that there is no longer an accurate or single definition of proper female sexuality–or perhaps there never was a proper definition. We have been trained as women to dress for the "male gaze," which ultimately objectifies us to society. This objectification causes us to question our own pride in our bodies and what we stand for. karl Lagerfeld, a male fashion designer, said, "No one wants to see curvy women." When was consent given for men to decide what type of women people want to see?


In this series, the highly sexualized pin-up dolls of the 1960's are used to represent the male gaze, while the lingerie juxtaposes with how women want to express themselves. Does wearing this type of clothing make her confident and powerful, putting her curves on display? Or does it increase her exposure to objectification, fulling a role that has been given to her? You decide.
