Máscara contra Máscara

Janice Suhji's avatar Janice Suhji

“Máscara Contra Máscara,” involves home-made Lucha Libre masks and vintage dresses. It’s a celebration of every woman who is fighting the unseen fight, taking her stand as a woman in this world. Process is a significant part of the story, in this work. The artist learned how to sew for this project, in order to make one of the most masculine and violent symbols, a wrestling mask. From hijabs, wedding veils, to Pussy Riot, “mask” has been playing a significant role in the history of women and Suhji juxtaposes the conventional masculinity and femininity by showcasing wrestling masks on women of everyday life.
