Review | HER-O by Marisa Mu & Simone Taylor
On the 3rd of April, 2018, a tiny triumph occurred. In humble Goodspace Gallery of Chippendale (NSW, Australia), Marisa Mu and Simone Taylor invited artists to celebrate a night titled EPITOME OF HER-O.
Designed as a gender-inclusive platform for artists to discuss both freedom and censorship of the female form, the EPITOME OF HER-O succeeded in playfully dragging ‘self-love’ and ‘candour’ to the fore.
The sense among the happy attendees was “Oh, about time”.
Because, surely — in 2018 — while any human form (irrespective of gender) requires emojis as covers in order to be consumed, we will not grow as a society. The youth are cawing for diversity and freedom of expression. The artists involved in this showcase courageously answered the call, even if for just one night.
I’ll drink to that.
