A collection of self-captioned portraits and audio recordings of women from around the world, FEMALE seeks to understand the female identity, searching for collective truths in volume, and unflinching individualism in the mosaic.
Choosing to present the women faceless is an effort to suggestively evoke what can’t be seen. Creating an experience that is simultaneously intimate and anonymous. Without a face as the central point for expression, the artist forces the viewer to create their own narrative about each woman, allowing them the opportunity to reflect their own judgment, objectification, and biases.
These faceless women strike a balance between vulnerability and empowerment, exclaiming their identity by unveiling what is infinitely more intimate than a face, a part that they themselves are unable to see every day.
