Yossi Loloi’s Full Beauty

Yossi says:

“In my work I portray what larger women represent to me. I focus on their fullness and femininity, as a form of protest against discrimination set by media and by today’s society. What larger women embody to me is simply a different form of beauty. I believe we own ‘freedom of taste’ and one shouldn’t be reluctant of expressing his inclination towards it. Limiting this freedom is living in a dictatorship of esthetics “

Walking on the Wall

This is a re-enactment of a performance that was made in order to challenge the limits of the space and the body. What would happen if we alter one factor from a daily mundane activity like walking? Would walking be perceived the same if we bring the floor on the wall? Trisha Brown’s dance “Walking on the Wall” (1971) is performed daily in Barbican gallery as part of the Laurie Anderson, Trisha Brown, Gordon Matta-Clark: Pioneers of the Downtown Scene, New York 1970s exhibition that ends today.

For more information watch The Guardian’s audio slideshow about the three gravity-defying and ground-breaking dance pieces taking place in the exhibition here and the BBC News video about New York 1970s downtown scene recreated here
