“tit’s” is an artistic project created together with Naomi Thellier de Poncheville. The claim is “choose yourself, choose your friend’s, choose who you please – who pleases you” Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and the very idea of what is beautiful or perfect is relative – never absolute. Celebrating all the diversity and singularity in the female form, we have created a catalogue of women’s breasts – releasing a collection of t-shirts and artworks to be sported and exhibited with pride.
Project created with Naomi Thellier de Poncheville for an itinerant exhibition celebrating womanhood, developed in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and launched in Barcelona (Catalonia).
Concept: “Choose yourself, choose your friend’s, choose who you please – who pleases you”.
Under this idea we created a collection of artwork celebrating the beauty in the diversity and singularity of the female form. A limited series of screen printed t-shirts was created adorning different women’s breasts.
Several catalogues were printed – referencing those that one might find in a breast implant clinic. These catalogues archived over a hundred busts of varying sizes, from different ages and nationalities.
Nowadays, part of the modern culture promotes some imperfections and leads people to show their “imperfections” and feel not ashamed by them. The main character of this sort of revolution is Lady Gaga who writes and sings lots of songs about this theme. The most representative song is “Born this way”.
I’m beautiful in my way
‘Cause God makes no mistakes
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way (chorus)
That’s why we have chosen an episode of the fiction “Glee”, which is about a group of students who belong to a Music Club (called Glee) in an American high school. In this video they sing “Born this way” and everybody of them is wearing a T-Shirt where is written a sentence about their imperfections. Some examples are the soloist (who is an omsexual boy) wears the sentence “Likes boys”, and another (who is a fat black girl) wears the sentence “No weave”.
