Kara – Still:Moving – Fall 2013


Video Installation
Still:Moving (Photo-5312)

For her final assignment Kara created a simple, but elegant video installation in which footage of a professional wrestling match was projected onto the tutu wearing torso of a male mannequin. The images of the wrestlers stretched across the revolving mannequin and tutu are accompanied by the sounds of a music box. Taken as a whole the piece does an amazing job of calling out the performative nature of gender roles and the mechanisms through which they are insinuated into the child’s psyche.
