Is This Yours?
Part of a series of three, the industrialized columns are reclaimed through roses as transformative femininity. Titled with varying degrees of personally asked sexist questions, "Is This Yours?" is the cumulative third pillar in the series. Defined by acceptance and self-confidence, the question in the title poses no immediate stereotypes or sexist comments. The traditionally masculine materials equalize within the piece to validate Weinfuter as a female sculptor and explore her own gender and identity.
