Description

LONDON'S HOTTEST, EDGIEST VISUAL ARTIST, VASILISA FORBES IS TURNING THE INDUSTY ON IT'S HEAD! WITH HER NEW SUBVERSIVE CAMPAIGN, #WAXCHICK, VASILISA IS CHALLENGING FEMALE GENDER ROLES IN ART AND ADVERTISING. BOTH INFRONT AND BEHIND THE CAMERA. WITH HER EDGEY BLEND OF SEXUALITY AND SOCIETIES PERCEPTION OF WOMEN IN POP CULTURE, SHE NOW PRESENTS THE VIEWER WITH IMAGERY, BOTH MOVING AND STILL TO PROVOKE DEBATE ON HOW WOMEN ARE SEEN. IS IT OK TO USE SEXUALITY AND OBJECTIFICATION TO EMPOWER WOMEN? OR IS IT PLAYING INTO OLD MISOGYNISTIC IDEAS IN ART, BOTH FANTASY AND REALITY AND BUILDING WALLS INSTEAD OF PUSHING BOUNDRIES...?
