Bodyscape by Titarubi

2005, dimensions variable, Installation (fibreglass wrapped with brocade,lamp)

Titarubi challenges prevalent stereotypes and cultural constructions about the role and place of women (and men). Nine male figures in fibreglass suspended in mid-air are wrapped with an elaborately patterned brocade associated with femininity.

Blurring boundaries between ‘male’ and ‘female’ characteristics, she challenges entrenched social norms on gender and clothing and questions what is deemed proper or morally acceptable in representations of the body.
