Marianne Abbott has interviewed Signe Pierce for DRØME Magazine. In the wake of her recent Virtual Normality performances around the United States and Europe, Pierce ponders the contrast between harsh aggression and soft femininity in her work. She says: “There is definitely an aggression in the work that I do. I refer to the hyper-feminine facade that I put on as a venus fly trap because I like that metaphor of shaping myself into something that can easily ensnare the gaze of somebody who might not look at art otherwise. Except often these hyper-feminine characters then devolve into the grotesque. I like to create these beautiful, monolithic characters and then tear them down, but a lot of times they get back up. I like watching the rise and fall and then the rise again.” To read the full interview, click here.
