I’m very happy to be a part of this important Instagram exhibition run by the Feminist Art Museum.
The Feminist Art Museum is a digital art museum featuring the best in intersectional art. We support people of color, queer, and womxn artists first. We showcase works that embrace the nuances of all feminisms. We aim to raise awareness of societal inequities and positive ways to disrupt them through visual art. >>
Below you can view my 3 paintings from “2020” and “Mea Vulva” series chosen and posted on Instagram.
The vagina is revealed to the public in Beata’s paintings. It is being watched, without having to be voyered. Most often it is presented as an object. As a work of art, placed in an open space such as an object in a museum or gallery. And it has an audience that is looking and is not ashamed. The vagina is exposed here as something that is separate from the body. It becomes an autonomous phenomenon.
But it is not a prop. Not a phantom of a vagina. It is its revealing and even epiphany. It appears as an object, which is to be looked at. It proudly presents itself before the audience. On the wall of the gallery, in a dream, and in a natural landscape.
