I am a Sculpture major working on four video-works for my upcoming Thesis Art Exhibition. My theme for the videos is The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. For the video War I rented out the CREATE_space blue screen room. In the video I play the character of Wonder Woman parodying the 1800s French painting of Liberty Leading the People; an image in which a sexualized female figure embodying the victory of the French army leads them to glory on the battlefield. The concept in this video is that the most socially acceptable form of female power is sex. The Wonder Woman figure is meant to represent the American embodiment of female power. By speaking about gaining power through the use of the sexualized body I hope to point out that it is a faulty social system and women should be able to hold positions of power and respect regardless of how much skin they are showing.
