What’s Under There is an interactive performance that reflects popular culture and beliefs about the female experience, balanced with the thoughts, feelings, dreams and aspirations of real women.
What's Under There draws the audience in as a collaborator, making each viewer decide whether to be supportive, critical or complicit with the choices, decisions and behaviors of the women performing. Shifting from beautiful to disturbing to humorous, this work reveals our fascination with many ways we allow ourselves to be manipulated and demonstrates ways we can break away from our roles and reclaim our stereotypes.
What's Under There has been shown at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (2012) and as part of Material Witness, an exhibition presented by the Women's Caucus for Art, GA at Agnes Scott College's Dalton Gallery (2013).
