kusama pyjamas

Submit   gender + art If blogs were mullets, this would be the party at the back where I aggregate anything to do with gender in arts and popular culture. mainly queer & feminist art, a smidge of personal favorite artists, the occasional related docos and news. For the business at the front of sharing art that might interest queer, feminist, womanist, genderqueer, transgender, whoever creatives: please click on the pink above.

Titled for Yayoi Kusama, who is the cat's pyjamas.

BG: Talking about fear and landscape makes me think about Heteratopic Glitch. That work changed the landscape, and inside the plastic balls the women were in a potentially airless environment. At first it seems beautiful and playful, but then you are afraid for these women.
AB: It is potent with anxiety, that space. They can’t puncture the ball or they’ll sink. No one really knows what might happen. That’s something I’m really conscious of in the work, that there’s an expectation or anticipation, but the future is a bit ambiguous. In those works that involve a landscape I like to push beyond the realms of possibility; you don’t expect ten women to be able to walk on water
