Our social image is marked by stereotyped binary and heteronormative notions. Colours and forms are clearly thought of as being on the “male” or “female” side. But we, as humans, are not either/or, rather both-at-once. It is striking that explicitly female characteristics are socially more critically perceived than male ones.
I have employed precisely this exaggerated gender-female image in the form of the princess. The construed figure of the princess is one that has influenced thousands of people, and still does. She is a figure that excites dreams and flights of imagination. My everyday costume is meant to give people the possibility to immerse themselves in this gender-female princess realm in which they can express a part of their personality.
