IT`S NOT LIKE BARBIE DOESN`T HAVE A BROKEN HEART AND HELLO KITTY DOESN`T BITE
– is a statement that provokes the stereotypes and the change of the perspective regarding women`s position. In 1950, when Barbie was created, feminism was not a concept. Although today we are aware that her physique is unattainable within the limits of the human form, it has remained our standard of female beauty. The installation contains 3 parts: the real “Barbie” (natural beauty), the plastic “Barbie” (the fake look that we want to build around our inner self), and the truth about the harmless kitty: sometimes she bites.
