Gratuitous art video commissioned in 2018 exclusively for The New Museum, New York, USA. My vision took cues from Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s novel Herland and Elaine Morgan’s aquatic ape hypothesis, particularly parts where the authors describe male fears of their surroundings. Herland describes the encounter of three men with an isolated society composed entirely of women, who reproduce via parthenogenesis. The aquatic ape hypothesis aims to redress traditional evolutionary theories by focusing on the evolution of female bodies. Believe.
