The story of Venus/Aphrodite, as she is know in Greek mythology, is one of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. But a 21st Century look at femininity questions the historical notions of gender identity which now spans a broad spectrum from feminine/masculine to butch/camp.
This project looks at the classical iconography of Venus and questions who the goddess would be today, what would be the life style and what furniture would inhabit this world. Referencing the sinuous forms of burlesque, high fashion and the high seas.
