Kiss mi Ass is a very personal response 2 the culture we inhabit which still values women as trophies, objects 2 be owned, and has yet 2 come 2 terms with the real virtues of a strong woman.
As John Lennon said, *woman is the nigger of the world…sadly this is still true 40 years later, but it is time 4 change!
For the Kiss It pieces, I took the original piece, Kiss mi Ass, and photographed it on the graffiti wall where the original images were shot. i then took the new images, and graffited over those. The Kiss It pieces thus blur the distinction between subject and object 2 the point where hopefully it is no longer possible 2 separate the 2. The objectification process has been nullified.
There are 3 Kiss It pieces -
*the predominant conception of objectification
*the power & nobility of a strong woman
*undervalued & underappreciated & im not scared
u can c the pieces in more detail, & purchase them, at mi etsy shop
its basically abt the objectification of women & the prostitution of the artist
abt how i often feel undervalued & overlooked in mi daily life
i can currently b found selling mi body in order 2 feed mi children on ebay http://www.stores.ebay.co.uk/katelovemagic
