SWE: Ett skägg symboliserar “manlighet” – en orakad snippa innebär skam. Verket be*haart leker med vår syn på kön, normer, förtryck och stolthet.

ENG:

In the visual artwork ‘be*haart / be*hairdy’ [a composition of Engl. ‘to be’, ‘hairy’, ‘hardy’ and Ger. ‘behaart’ (hairy) and ‘hart’ (hard)], Missister Ann deals with female* body hair that is exposed and worn with pride.

A female* body gets deconstructed and knit again together, and it can be examined carefully. Pit hair is shown ostentatiously and gender boarders become blurry – especially as there is a face too.  A face gazing at the viewers* gaze and confronting him*her with pride and shame.

Missister Ann first appeared in autumn 2016 out of the kingdom behind the moon. Since then s’he is growing, trying to express the oppression of female* bodies.

Share your hair. | No shave no shame. | Pit hair don’t care. | Hair is natural – deal with it.
