Group Show : Femina Extravaganza

The contemporary society and culture still fail to differentiate femininity from womanhood, and female from woman. The sociocultural framework rather creates visual imagery and textual discourse to enforce ‘femininity and womanhood’ as well as ‘female and woman’ as embodied identities into certain bodies. This discourse further creates exclusivity to cast aside any other bodies that are willing to identify as ‘woman’ or live their lives through the ‘womanhood’. The victims who suffer from this power system often stand in these conflicted zones of woman as ‘embodied identity’ vs ‘gendered identity’. This exhibition explores the body as a site of struggle, consumption projected to media/society/culture, and further investigates ‘femina’ as an extraterritorial space that can embrace those bodies that identity as female but not woman, or as woman but not female; those bodies that have lived through femininity but not womanhood, or through womanhood but not femininity.
