Nina Westman

#freethenipple, 2015



”A subject acts, and an object is acted upon.”

The glass vases with female breasts is Nina Westman's contribution to the debate about the double standard that exists when it comes to censorship of the female breast and the sexualisation of the female upper body.
#freethenipple is an equality movement that started in the US where the breast is criminal in many states but also in Sweden and Europe, seen the woman's upper body through a "male gaze", a sexualized gaze.
