Monolith

Monolith presents the viewer with a female-bodied robot figure created in a futuristic sex dystopia as willing object for acting out sexual violence. Conceived as a response to global shifts in the conversation around gender equality like the Trump presidency and the emergence of the anti-feminist party in Sweden (Swedish Democrats), the project imagines a future where sexual violence is not just normalized but commodified. She speaks directly to the viewer, addressing the gap between how queer and feminist theory are articulated and their efficacy as agents of social change in real life.
