In Western culture the covered face of a woman often conjures up distress, bewilderment, or consternation. Japanese artist Tadanori Yokoo has been challenging the psychological impact of the male gaze via the concealment of the female face for the past forty years. Building on his seminal “Back of Head” watercolor series from 1980, and “The Falling Woman” series from 2010, Yokoo is presenting a new body of work where he subverts vintage pin-up images derived from Banshu-ori textiles and Harima matchboxes and supplants the face with random household objects and vegetables. The result is a subversive contemporary Pop-Dadaism that questions social norms, cultural authority, the objectification of women through advertising, and the challenges of privacy in an image saturated world.
