Shame For Sale
Can private matters remain private when displayed in public places?
If shame can be had, can it be given?
And if it can be given, can it be sold?
In this work of contradictions my aim is to interpret ideas concerning vulnerability in opening up about feelings of shame. Themes of responsibility and permission are also suggested throughout the work. In a time where I am becoming more aware of my identity as a young woman as well as an artist, I am trying to understand my own personal barriers as I seek to create a connection in this project between the personal and the professional. In Shame For Sale I put a part of myself on display and prompt the viewer to do the same through participation.
