G1rl W0rld is an exploration of gender through archetypes. By inviting viewers to interact with multiple layers of textiles and augmented reality, the project seeks to open discussions regarding the sexualisation and objectification of women in mainstream media.

About G1rl World

G1rl W0rld explores the theme of gender by reclaiming traditional craft and uses its political potential to work against a history of violence and repression against women to be both radically disruptive and radically reparative. Nair-Lacheta examines the role of aesthetics and archetypes by leaning into the caricature of femininity, via hyper-feminine and hyper-sexual aesthetics, to critique and reject the male gaze and reclaim the power of that femininity. The pieces of furniture in the installation function as a portal. The audience will be able to access 3D archetypes through Augmented Reality (AR), into an imaginative world that is unapologetically femme.
