Body molds of modern and strong women. Beautiful, pure, and with a cause. With her artwork, Nicole Tiesmeier aka Juno, is also questioning patriarchic structures like those found in the Catholic church.

I am ashamed that women are so simple
To offer war where they should kneel for peace;
Or seek for rule, supremacy and sway,
When they are bound to serve, love and obey.
— Katharina in "The Taming of the Shrew" by Shakespeare

Hi, I visited the dual artist exhibition Connected in Brick 5, featuring Juno's pure white body sculptures and paintings of Jolanda Richter.

In this blog post, I will focus on the plaster artwork by Juno. Most of the exhibits were devoted to a figure in Shakespeare, but the most prominent installation was that of "Female Jesus" (Frau Jesus), showing three women hanging on the cross.

With her artwork, Juno also wants to question the patriarchic structures still found in our society and especially in the Catholic church, which has influenced our society for two millennia.

I asked Juno why she does not mold male bodies, and she explained, she even had one male exhibit (Romeo and Juliet), but it unfortunately broke during transport from Hamburg to Vienna. Juno is currently living in Hamburg and did her first exhibition in Vienna. But there is also a more practical answer to my question. Molding men is more difficult, because men usually have more body hair and then there is the issue with male stamina ;) The molding process would take several hours ...

Why can women still not become priests in the Catholic church?
