Women perform, at home, at the office, on the stage, a stereotypical modern femininity.
Instigator/Revolutionary, Young Girl, Housewife, Diva, Career Bitch, and Sex Object…
these are roles the female voice inhabits, whether willingly or subconsciously, based on the biases within and without her. Whatever suits the situation before her.
These are unstable illusions, temporary grotesque masks, none reflecting the full truth of a person. Nevertheless, entire careers, relationships, even lifetimes are staged around the principles of these stereotypes. Vixen, whore, virgin, goddess, boy… Who is the singer and who is the product? She is whoever you need her to be.
I will start off with confrontation.
I will track the alleged power of woman from the mental to the corporeal.
I will tread the furthest edge of insecurity and domesticity before breakdown.
I will go inward.
I will give in to the stereotypes.
I will turn myself into the canvas.
I will capitalize on myself.
I will become your object of desire.
I will pull the strings with just a gesture to make all the world revolve around me.
I will haunt you. I will stalk you.
I will be your worst nightmare.
I will deliver what you didn’t ask for.
