After a significant success during la Nuit Tribe, we decided to extend the Army of Vandals exhibit until April 2. Conceived as part of la Nuit blanche à Montréal by Montreal artist MissMe, the gigantic collage piece embodies her subversive vision of femininity.
You may have already seen MissMe’s works on the streets of Montreal. Working under the cover of night, the enigmatic artist goes all over the city looking for spots to display her works, including her Vandals series, which is featured prominently in this exhibition. These giant figures, all the same height and appearance, present a woman wearing only a balaclava and a t-shirt lifted to show her breasts, which become the artist’s canvas for displaying the different faces of femininity: aggression, gentleness, insolence, provocation. Created with the intention of overturning the omnipresent stereotypes in the media, Vandals never shows the woman in a position of seduction. She stands tall and strong, in full possession of her body and her sexuality.
In addition to this free exhibition, several promotional articles designed in collaboration with MissMe (caps, t-shirts, etc.) are on sale in Le Rhinocéros boutique.
