Artist Yolanda Dominguez continually creates work that passes comment on society often highlighting issues surrounding gender and consumption. Through a mix of photography and film, Yolanda has questioned our invasion of online privacy in the digital age (Gallery, 2014) and responded to the 2013 Bangladesh factory disaster where over 1,000 textile workers were killed (Fashion Victims, 2013).
In her most recent project, Niños Vs Moda (Kids Vs Fashion), Yolanda asked a group of eight-year-old children to describe what they saw when shown certain fashion campaigns raising important questions about representation in the industry. Yolanda’s thoughtful and considered execution gives the viewer the chance to reflect and act upon her work, such that she incited audience participation at Here 2016 in reenacting en masse the pose of one of her most sardonic fashion photographs.
