From high school to her photography studies at LUCA School of Arts and her current fashion studies, Jyoti Dresselaers’ heart is captivated by all things art and beauty. Fascinated by the versatility of life, she tries to capture all that touches her – often at the intersection of technology, fashion and art. She is constantly looking for new things, which usually manifests itself in installations in which video and photography come together.
What is masculine? What is feminine? Even today, there are still quite a lot of misunderstandings about gender (equality), according to Jyoti Dresselaers. In the series Male Flight, the artist argues that men still tend to renounce things or even professions if, in their eyes, they have become too feminine. But why? Is it because everything feminine is still seen as weak, fragile, powerless? With evocative images, Dresselaers shows how the difference between ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ is nonsensical. It is a complete fabrication.
