Silverio's latest work, uses paper dolls to explore society's idea of womanhood and the coded messages of appropriate femininity that came with the dolls that make up so much of a young girl's life. "Be a lady" is an admonishment that girls often hear with the underlying message that she is somehow wrong. In Be A Lady, Silverio’s paper dolls are symbols of sexuality, vulnerability, confidence, intelligence, physicality and the process of resolving all the facets of one’s self.
On January 6th, Miss Art World will perform Alterations, her newest performance that explores a woman's perspective of the inanimate Love Dolls that men use to replace female partners. Performed in The Closet in Shoebox Project’s, the performance uses small closed space as metaphor of the unseen and hidden aspects of Love Dolls. The performance will be recorded and available for viewing until January 20th.
