Why is this woman not ridiculously famous!? Artist Suzanne Heintz spent 14 years on this project, traveled 10,000 miles…mostly to prove a point that women don’t need to fill a stereotype in this day and age. Heintz is single and her family is always pestering her…when are you going to get married? Why aren’t you married? Well…who says that a women needs to be married? That was her point in this very long art project…she created her own family, including a husband and a child. And by created…she made a mannequin family! She traveled the world, posing in a bunch of different destinations to fill a stereotype. Not only did she pose for the woman married with an attractive family stereotype…she took the photos time locked when that stereotype actually mattered…the 70’s. She doesn’t feel that she needs to be married to besuccessful but this is just such a cool way for her to present the idea that women don’t need to fit into the blah blah married housewife stereotype! This is such a clever depiction of what some of society think women’s reality should be. A trophy. A mother cooking. Bonding in pretty places. The trailer for her photos is hilarious and she’s passionate about what she’s done with these mannequins. She’s a “grown woman playing house” and that to me is just so cool! Is this weird? Simply creative? Absurd? Not accurate? Accurate? I wish I had heard about this woman before because not only is she standing up for the fact that women can create their own world and don’t need to married to be happy and have fun, she is just simply fun and amazing!
