Let them be


at gndrrrr revolution group exhibition, Estonian Academy of Arts


This work is about my brother. He loves to dress up, play “fashion studio” and to take care of his dolls. When dressing up, he usually decides embody a female. He platonically explains: “It is just much more interesting, I love women."


The aim of the work Let them be is to play with the idea of fashion, the rules of age, gender and stereotypes, and their relation to garments. The video work shows how we reproduce gender and idea of ourselves through clothing. We dress to perform, and when it comes to gender, we blindly tend to mimic it.
