Taking up the entire 2nd floor hallway of the Gladstone Hotel, Embrace was viewed by over 4000 guests who visited the weekend exhibition.
After seeing the powerful women* I admire despise themselves, I felt responsible to create a project that would help women see some of the miraculous qualities they possess. I wanted to create something inclusive, interactive and immersive, so when walking through the tunnel, guests could enter a journey and experience beautiful parts of themselves.
Beginning with the sensual shape, and progressing through the vagina, the womb and the mind, “Embrace” invites you to admire the endless shapes and skins women come in, experience their phenomenal qualities, and be enlightened by the woman’s perspective.
