Wigging out


Another artist is at it with the merkins again. A merkin, for the uninitiated, is a pubic wig. Back in Novermber 2012 , I posted a link to an art project featuring wild and colourful merkins.

This time, artist/photographer Rhiannon Schneiderman has decided to express her “frustration with the idea of ‘femininity’ and gender roles” by getting her kit off and posing naked with a variety of huge wigs attached to her crotch.

According to an article on the photos by HuffPo, “The series gives a definitive ‘hell no’ to the objectification of women, and the pressures put upon them to conform to beauty standards — even with regards to their pubic hair.”

    Looks like she shaves her legs, so a bit hypocritical?
