Originating from a central focus, five artists uniquely branch in different voices and mediums. The works are all centered in the mythos, storytelling, and conflation of feminine and personal histories. Individually, the four reclaim power while creating community.
Repossessing traditionally feminine objects and stories around beauty, the artists engage in social dialogues that are canonically belittled; the veil, the beauty of female face and body, and feminine crafts (like "pom-poms") come together to turn feminine practices on their heads.
