Art is Feminism

In my artistic research I’ve focused on the connections between creativity and psychoanalytic feminism as per Julia Kristeva’s readings of Melanie Klein (including my own psychosexuality as well as said connections in terms of the artification theory of Ellen Dissanayake). In the installation iteration below, the thesis I proposed, i.e. that art is feminism or that all art is feminist art, took on the form of: cross-stitched double x chromosomes, a binary black hole channeling light onto a black reflexive surface, a so-called “Venus Figurine” juxtaposed with a male masturbator, baby pink and baby blue lenticular panels depicting the optic chiasma and so on.
