There’s something innately brilliant about the juxtaposition in artist Zoe Buckman’s latest project, Every Curve."
British artist Zoe Buckman explores intersectional themes of feminism and blackness in her project Every Curve."
Every Curve, PAPILLION ART, Los Angeles, CA
PAPILLION ART will present Every Curve, Zoë Buckman's debut Los Angeles exhibition, realizing an ongoing body of work, three years in the making, which explores the contradictory and complimentary influences of Feminism and Hip-Hop in her upbringing. The installation of hanging vintage lingerie reveals the artist’s fascination with femininity throughout time. Buckman hand-embroiders the lingerie with lyrics that refer to women from the iconic rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. The text spans from the violent and misogynistic to the wholly sympathetic and pro-choice. This juxtaposition is witty in its provocation and empowered awareness while comparing the Janus-faced relationship between feminism and Hip-Hop both in the 90’s and today. This body of work will be shown in its entirety at PAPILLION ART, LA, from March 12 to April 30.
