By diverting objects of everyday life and fashion accessories, fragments belonging to the haute couture or to the history of art, the Paintings transform the works of PICASSO, MATISSE, GAUGUIN, REMBRANDT, RUBENS, DELACROIX, TIEPOLO, and WATTEAU (we can't help but think that Lady G and the Haus of GaGa should pick up the "Telephone" and set up a date with this incredibly gifted artist).
Since she fled her homeland to escape the mortifying servitude and humiliating fate of Japanese women, Kimiko YOSHIDA – through what is called “self-portraits” – has refined and amplified a feminist stance of protest, cultivated and distanced from “current affairs”: against contemporary cliches of seduction, against voluntary servitude of women, against “identity” defined by appurtenances and “communities”, against the stereotypes of “gender” and the determinism of heredity. It's a fantastic exhibition and we highly recommend you learn more about her work here. And just for fun, we've included Lady GaGa's SIXTH consecutive #1 single "Telephone" below. (We're officially obsessed with this video!) Enjoy and have a great weekend!
