Natasja Mabesoone: Bernice Bobs Her Hair

Veva Leye, Harryette Mullen

Posture Editions, 2021


‘Bernice Bobs Her Hair’ is a series of layered soft ground etchings, drawings and monotypes. Starting from the biased idea and normative use of marginalised graphic procedures as a means of reproduction, the idea of repetition is explored. In tandem, Mabesoone recoups visual languages that have habitually been coded as ultra-feminine and trivial. She questions how these ambiguous and subversive aesthetics can gain authority, and destabilise or resist contemporary realities and dominant cultural constructions.
