Dark Reclamations: Archetypes of Empowerment
"Show the world your queens of chaos, your bloodthirsty goddesses, and your vengeful witches—anything that captures the dark, beautiful elements of existence patriarchal narratives have systemically corrupted and projected onto womankind as wicked things unworthy of adoration."
Dark Reclamations highlights the things patriarchal society has labeled as evil, unattractive, and even dangerous when present within a feminine body. For centuries, female power, magick, and rage, among other things, have been viewed as abominations that threaten to destroy the “natural order” and plunge the world into irreparable darkness. These pieces engage with and challenge notions of “proper, male-approved” femininity by confronting the senses with subversive representations of what it means to be a powerful woman.
