Lot 378 - Sevina Tzanou - Dirty Martini
Colour pencil and glitter on paper
Signed on Verso
This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust.
Sevina Tzanou (b. 1994, Athens, Greece) collapses bodies, space, and time in her painting process. Through an engagement with Burlesque, drama, and drag communities she explores the subjectivity of the femme; a hyper- feminine performance which celebrates and annunciates the queer characteristics of femininity. Through a hyper-visualization of femininity, Sevina’s work, and notions of the femme, call attention to the very constructed nature of femininity and reclaim that construction with all its glossy, frilly, rich characteristics inherent in its deployment.
