Portia Munson’s work on show at Frieze London this year, is a mega display of everything pink. A warm bath to some, an itchy spot for others, but definitely once created for a female audience.
According to Artsy it’s one of the best 20 booth’s at Frieze London this year. “(…) collected hundreds of pink, plastic items—dolls, My Little Ponies, makeup receptacles, hair accessories, and mirrors among them—marketed at young girls and women. The table is not just a feast for the eyes, but also a trip down memory lane and a potent reminder of consumerism’s influence on children.
Portia Munson is an American artist (1961, Michigan) who’s work includes photography, painting, sculpture and installation and focuses primarily on environmental and cultural themes seen from a feminist perspective.
