Close your eyes and think about the times where you wanted to play or wear something and you were called out for it. Think about the moment where someone told you "You should not wear/ play that, is not for your kind.."
How many times have you felt suppressed by the stereotypes that have been formed for your gender?
let's slow down
This is an introduction of a 2021 project to understand the stereotypes we have created for our genders and what is the entitlement of 'machismo'. This work will be part of my spring MA exhibition (7039 mil) with other fellow artists and classmates.
As a young girl I was not allowed to dress up,talk or play/do certain activities as it was not meant for my gender, in other words "ladyllike". Women from the moment they are born have to look out for warnings and teach what is appropriate for there "kind". I realized that men have the same issues but with most cases to lead them to frustration.

The work contains different elements and layers of photographs of a naked man and a motherboard. Its edited in different colours and combined into a gif.
The sound is a translation in Dutch of the protest 'Un violador en tu camino" (The rapist in your path) that took place in Santiago ,2019.
The title is linked to the aspects of the work. The nudity and the language . It is inappropriate for some and the idea is to challenge the audience by what they are listening, even if they don't understand what the female voice is talking about.
