This exhibition is a STARTyourself show by Xiang Li. STARTyourself affords students the exciting opportunity to submit a proposal to curate an exhibition at START Gallery or organize a solo exhibition of their own artwork in the gallery space.
Below is a brief description of what she envisions for the show and how she hopes the viewer will respond:
Titling this exhibition “Femme Fatale and Other Satires” is my attempt to forefront difficulties regarding body image and self-awareness that human would encounter. My intention is to deliver a feminist message with the show and increase women’s self- awareness, enabling them to free themselves from conventions and forced norms. The nature of the work is intended to be subtle, with a sense of sarcasm and disguised through its curvy ink lines, thick paint, and powerful strokes. Just as I let the artwork flow back on itself, the audience is free to respond to the work, interpret as they want, resonate with the images, or perhaps to redefine their own images, in an effort to achieve self-actualization.
