Description: SHE 

• is a statement in which ideas of utopia, leisure, and pride in being female are played out 

  •  suggests a narrative for all women, especially oppressed and so called ‘bad’ 
  •  is a manifestation against patriarchal social structure and ideas of normatively/propriety 
  • resists easy definition and defies confinement
  • is surreal, she is fantastic, she is grotesque 
  •  accepts every color of expression 
  •  is a beautiful monster where monstrousness is human, political and a metaphor for goodness 
  •  possesses intimacy and connectedness and defies objectification with her spectacular interior 
  • is phantasmagoric, open, colorful and carnivalesque, ready for birth 
  • is interactive and explorable, deliberately too large to be taken in and consumed from different angles 
  • is a shelter, a protector, an ideal of cultural strength, central to the community
  • is fundamentally a challenge to the sexist precepts of public representation 
  • is a celebration of sexual liberty and humanity 
  • is right in the middle of social interaction, actively being the spectator and the subject, autonomous and politically conscious
