🔴 Emma - Contemporary Feminist Art

Cyrielle Recoura

🔴 SOLD Acrylic Painting on canvas, 2020. Size: 50x50cm + homemade frame (brown with touches of gold) ⁣

Emma is an original painting part of my new serie of nudes, meant to raise awareness about rape culture. ⁣

⏩ What is rape culture? It refers to the behaviors in a society which allow sexual violence to be normalized and even justified. Here are a few examples : ⁣ ⁣
✖️ “come on, did you see how she was dressed?”⁣ ⁣
✖️ “she was drunk, you can’t call that a rape…” ⁣ ⁣

An IPSOS survey conducted in France 2019 in collaboration with the association “Mémoire Traumatique et Victimologique” revealed these frightening facts :
  • 27% of people think that a woman wearing an outfit described as “too sexy” is partly responsible for her assault
  • 17% of people consider that many women who say NO (for a sexual intercourse) actually mean YES
  • 18% even imagine that women can take pleasure in being forced (WHAT?!)
The survey was conducted in France but it speaks for many so-called developed countries. As long as people will be asking “what was the victim wearing?”, it will be essential to denounce and dismantle this system of thoughts. ⁣

EMMA is the most popular female given name in France in 2019. Nearly 4,000 families have given birth to a baby named Emma. A little Emma, ​​now an adorable one year old, who is going to grow up, become a woman and will have one “chance” out of 5 of being sexually assaulted. 800 Emmas out of the 4000 will be touched or raped in their life. ⁣

This painting is dedicated to these future Emmas. An unveiled body is NEVER a sign of consent. It’s about time that the world understands that.

I genuinely believe that art has the power to make the w…
