Contribution to the virtual exhibition "Objects of a Matriarchal Utopia" by Joanna Bacas.
S C U L P T U R E - Silicone life cast on white foam board 50cm x 50cm.
Inspired by the notorious scene of Gulliver's Travels, were the protagonist wakes up to discover himself tied down by a population of tiny people called Liliputians, this sculpture aims to depict another kind of "sleeping giant". As patriarchal culture and mentality have been dominant for centuries, the hand of matriarchy tries to free itself from the restrictions imposed by patriarchy to better express its full potential.
The exhibition is available on Joanna Baca's Instagram profile @joannabacas.
