Last one, promise :). #soho Behind the scenes for @interviewmag shoot by @ventiko featuring the #fantastic @jappopart & @stellamichaels #geisha
Is this a white tradition for white artists, that like at some point they have to use geisha iconography because… ? Are you not a white artist until you disrespect a culture that belongs to people of color? Is that Avant Garde, making use of stereotypes for your white audience?
Why do you have you wearing a Qipao-looking thing in the self-portrait, and then have this weird mash-up of japanese hiragana in one image? Why are there chopsticks in your hair? Why, WHY are you wearing that to your art showing? Are you channeling Katy Perry? Why is this “geisha”?
Why did you do this? Where you like, I need to reinterpret the geisha through my distorted perspective because I want to add to the gigantic amalgam of racist white interpretations of the “geisha”, because “millions” wasn’t enough. No, I wanna make sure I add to that.
PS That better not be a confederate flag up in the corner
