The Exposure Therapy project uses nipple stickers to fight for women’s equality.
I started the Exposure Therapy project in 2017 out of frustration with the way my body was being treated in America. I use the female body in my artwork, in a completely non-sexual way. When I tried to get my work printed, I was often refused service or even at times loudly shamed in front of other customers for submitting “pornography”. When I pressed for a reason for this categorization, I always received the same answer: “it shows your nipples.”
I find it so troubling that I was being body-shamed when my only offense was being a woman.
The more I thought about it, the more ridiculous the situation seemed. I wanted to find a way to expose the hypocrisy— to fight against the double-standard and empower others to do the same. I also wanted the project to be fun, innocent, and inclusive. What could satisfy these needs better than stickers?
