In her series “les fleurs du male” Alina Gross shows femininity in its sexual and lustful form. The title is ironic, and the flowers, a metaphor for female desire.
Women have been seen as birthing machines for many centuries. Female sexuality was a taboo. I think, female pleasure is not only important for reproduction and evolution, but also for an equal and satisfied life. With the series I want to create a space in which we can speak freely and openly about taboos and female sexuality.
