Chemical X

Spring/Summer 2013



In an endeavour to resolve and liberate the ambiguity that exists within the dress code of feminists, post-feminists and third-wave feminists, Chemical X is a visual response derived from high class prostitutes, such as Madame du Barry and Madame de Pompadour, exotic dancers, carnival queens and showgirls. Chemical X explores the inveiglement of artifice from a third-wave feminist perspective, in an effort to remind first and second-wave feminists that freedom of choice is the main reason why feminism happened in the first place.
