We, Lucille Galleli and Heiko Mahr, a female and a male artist, started a photography project #female_things. The aim is to photograph everyday items, representative of femininity in a way to underpin issues that are a result of social pressures or are self-inflicted.
Theses images are statements of our version of what femininity and being feminine means to each of us. We intend to challenge stereotypes by creating awareness and provocative impressions. This is a repost as in the first post the text wasn’t fully visible.
The artistic statement of the project is:
In times of #MeToo, "Pink Stinks“ and gendered Marketing.
In times of gender equality in words but inequality in actions.
In times of the push to shatter the glass ceiling.
We, a female and male artist create images of #female_things through which we make a statement about what femininity means to each of us. #art #photography #photo #Feminine #visualart #project #awareness #woman #empowerment #starwars #princessleia #tothegirls #heforshe
