Hermione Flynn presents (IN)DIFFERENCE

In collaboration with world-wide female body-building champion, and renowned photographer Evelyn Bencicova Hermione Flynn presents a full photographic series revealing a model and muse who challenges current perceptions of both beauty and gender. The exploration of what defines gender, and how those differences inform gender inequality is at the heart of Hermione Flynn’s new work (IN)DIFFERENCE

Motivated and perpetually shocked by both historical and current gender inequality, Flynn began considering the biological and socially constructed differences between men and women, and how these inform our behaviours today. It is through the course of analysing, dissecting and reversing some of these typically male or female visual indicators, that Flynn challenges how our history of gender discrimination and stereotyping has left an unnecessary residue on the current social environment,  even in our most “liberal” societies.

From the smallest of details to our innate biological differences, (IN)DIFFERENCE presents a multi-layered visual experience which incorporates a subtle nod, as well as an almighty shout, to the very things that define woman and man. At the centre of the collection is the re-coded apron. Constructed from the suiting fabrics of traditional corporate menswear, the (IN)DIFFERENCE aprons capture and fuse stereotypical symbols of both male and female working roles.

Exploring the garment’s traditions literally in the studio, a deliberate attempt was made by Flynn to overwhelm and weigh upon the body through layering, composition and sizing, a process which also revealed the apron’s latent associationswith several cultural traditions of bodily concealment.
