Role Models, installation, 2015

Role Models was a collaboration with Phaedra Call in which we explored our adolescent fascinations with Monica Lewinsky and Brandi Chastain.

The installation considers female sexuality and gender performance as filtered through mass media outlets and epitomized by specific clothing worn by Lewinsky and Chastain: a blue dress and a black bra.

The presentation of the notorious clothing items draws upon the language of the memorial in both an architectural and a more intimate, mawkish sense. The flowers that accumulate beneath the shadow boxes throughout the duration of the installation acknowledge the artists shared, intimate reverence for these figures.
