BREASTIVALVESTIBULE is an installation of inflatable architecture that welcomes participants into its soft, responsive walls, aiming to exist as a temporary autonomous zone in the public sphere, a liminal space where the rules of interaction shift. Breastival Vestibule invites possibility, and celebrates resistance to the real or perceived constraints of our everyday lives.
The Breastival Vestibule set about examining the practice of toplessness for people within & outside of mainstream society, occupying a variety of bodies and genders. With roots in 1970s feminisms that gave birth to an explosion of utopian subcultures & practice, 40 years later, Breastival asks, what does our current relationship to these movements have to show about our personal & cultural relationships to body? What does this articulate about sex and gender-based oppression and violence in the 21st Century? Through a collection of responses to questions posed in workshops & questionnaires, Breastival Vestibule considers the effects of societal norms that live inside each of us, & practices of resistance to both real & presumed limitations.
