Zhixuan Ye

"Anti-consumerism for Women" is a compelling video piece that captures the destruction of elaborate lipstick crowns, symbolising the disillusionment with the illusions perpetuated by consumerism and societal expectations.

Through this work, the artist Zhixuan Ye aims to shed light on the complex interplay between female empowerment, consumer culture, and the dichotomy of reality and illusion. This video piece serves as a poignant exploration of themes such as feminism, consumerism, and the blurred lines between reality and fantasy. By deconstructing the symbolism of lipstick crowns, the artist challenges the viewer to question the authenticity of the empowerment narratives propagated by the makeup industry. "Anti-consumerism for Women" is a thought-provoking addition to exhibitions exploring themes related to feminism, consumer culture, and the juxtaposition of reality and illusion. It invites viewers to critically reflect on the societal constructs that shape perceptions of beauty, power, and identity.
