I want to Marry a Prisoner

I wish to create work through the medium of collage, montage and mixed media assemblage that investigates the existing gender stereotypes pertaining to the roles of women. Through the aforementioned modes of working and through using satire and humour, I wish to subvert these stereotypes by performing and enacting them in ways that suit the subject while satiating those members of society intent on ensuring women are doing what women are “supposed” to be doing. I hope to find “loopholes” within these gender roles that enable one to perform ones “feminine duties” without having to.
