Red Virgins

In this series, the features attributed to femininity are overplayed
to emphasise the ingrained clichés.

The shots are frontal and the bodies are faceless since archetypes are being confronted. Perforating photos is a way to remind the onlooker that words are blunt arms.

Embroidery is a genteel feminine signature, “pastime for elderly ladies“, that underlines the obligation to deal with suffering.
