Artist Zahra Stardust

Glitter Supernova’s Pretty Peepers Cabaret

Imperial Hotel

Photography Morgan Carpenter

In this performance piece, the artist critiques the pathologising of sex workers as passive victims, with a voiceover speaking back to stereotypes of femininity as weak, fake or superficial. She begins in a pink ball gag strapped in pink gaffer tape that reads ‘exploited’, ‘traitor’ and ‘brainwashed’. She proceeds to cut off the tape and replaces it with her own armour – a tool belt of condoms, lube and dildos, complete with pink hard hat.
