Most Important Ugly opens on Friday! These are just outtakes — process shots. Tomorrow (later today, really) Tayler & I will drop the official press release and some of the photos that will be at the exhibition so you can get more of an idea as to what we’ve been working on for the past six months. Excited.
The first person is Megan and the longest interview (I interview each sitter using a series of questions that informs the process of makeup and then Tayler shoots them after I’m done pulling their ugly out) — we talked a lot about Maggie Nelson, love and trauma, blue and gender dysphoria. The second one is my life muse Indigo, the leading lady of the project.
Anyway. I’ll talk more about the project tomorrow. Hope you’re stoked.
one time i said “no hetero, no hetero” in school
and this popular athletic straight boy sittin in front of me turned around super slow and looked at me and went “no… hetero?” in the TINIEST MOST BROKEN VOICE IMAGINABLE like he looked and sounded so timid and confused and he was looking at me like his whole life has been a lie because he realized he might be sitting near a queer person
This semester I went to the White Privilege Conference in Madison, WI for my honors seminar about examining privilege. I made a poster about the behaviors of particular white female musicians who appropriate other cultures as a means of identity and sexualize/objectify WOC as a means of displaying sexual agency and social power. All under the guise of “empowerment”.
This is my take on the knowledge I found through seminar and readings, (esp. online articles) so in no way do I claim these ideas or concepts as my own.
