In January, artist Indu Harikumar received a direct message from Instagram on “regular stranger”. “The man does not notice my breasts as if the rest are not there,” she said. The message was in response to Harikumar’s Instagram stories in which he regularly asks questions about body and sex issues and returns to the conversation.
Harikumar was intrigued. The experience described in the letter was not familiar to him. “In my early 20’s, people asked me if I would” give anything to my husband “because I was getting very small breasts,” said Harikumar.
“I would call her name” Carom Board “. I realized that not only were women with flat breasts, who had problems with the presence of breasts, and started wondering if there were more people with stories about their breasts .
This idea led to the emergence of the Hermione project “Identity”, in which they asked “women to send their pictures all around their breasts, along with their stories – cover So far, this 39-year-old girl has kept 14 women employees for the cause of how they are suffering or empowers their breasts.
At first, Harikumar was not sure whether he would lead this project or what kind of reaction it would bring, but it was a pleasant surprise.
In the last one month, it has received more than 40 applications. One of them was a transgender, while the last one was the man who wanted to share his story about the so-called “mobs”, which indicated that he would leave the word “woman” from his project.
Harikumar says that all the messages were inspired. An entry was from a woman who had received an adult nursing connection or a request for sexual breastfeeding – Harakumar Patte was not present, at least in India. She wanted to paint in a garden similar to Frida Kahlo’s self-portraits. I had read:
As always, Harikumar did not ask the sender about the meaning of the message. “I think their conjugated life can be a type of vanilla,” she said. “When you seek sexual pleasures outside her marriage, she faces these strange requests.”
“Kahlo’s self-image is a monkey in the garden, but according to the letter’s interpretation, I have two pairs in painting to show two worlds while swinging between them.”
Harikumar says that the project has shifted many followers from their chest to think differently – and give them greater acceptance.
“I started loving my breasts very much, I love the color of my dream and the harmless shape of my breasts, they are hanging on my chest, are resting, and now ready to please their appearance Were not, “was one of the reactions.
Although some people crossed the border in direct messages, most of them thanked them for giving access to stories that were impossible to reach.
“As women, we are accustomed to think of ourselves as bodies,” she said. “Most men of different sexes do not see themselves as bodies, and this is very pleasant for them.”
Recently a publishing Odyssey dancer presents in the Middle Ages in his series. According to his story, when he grew up, he was forced to believe that it was unfair for a woman to draw attention to her breasts. “Bra bars should be hidden quickly,” he wrote. “The scarf should cover the entire flower boxes.
” The more naked the outline of your clothes, the better. Certainly there was no mold for a woman to show her nipples. At the age of 18, he was surprised when he joined a dance class. To find such fixtures. “Imagine my shock, when the women in the Odyssey based on beautiful girls carving a temple were fine with their breasts … hell, they were in love with them … they had no concern about attracting their attention Was not. ”
The directive of Herikumar is clear for their respondents. They need to send a picture of their bust, but they should not be “naked” – they should “do what they feel secure and comfortable.” His only need is to keep the pictures in color.
“From the discussions I have made on Instagram, it is clear that Indians are ashamed of the color of their parts and what they see in white pornography stems from them.” “I wanted to be free from that because I wanted to paint a painter as much as possible.” Try to add all the physical details from bump to tattoos. “Before this project, I have never seen anybody close to my lovers too.”
Identity is the first complete digital project for Harikumar. They usually make pictures and make them digital. Clothes are included in their work dramatically.
