kimiko yoshida: self portraits

“Since she fled her homeland to escape the mortifying servitude and humiliating fate of Japanese women, Kimiko Yoshida – through what is called “self-portraits” – has refined and amplified a feminist stance of protest, cultivated and distanced from “current affairs”: against contemporary cliches of seduction, against voluntary servitude of women, against “identity” defined by appurtenances and “communities”, against the stereotypes of “gender” and the determinism of heredity.” [text by Jean-Michel Ribettes, 2009]
