With Bag of Aspirations Kalliopi Lemos resumes the female fighter’s allegory created within her Tools of endearment series, by equipping her giantess’ armour with one more object strictly linked with woman’s appearance and beauty – her bag. Choosing as point of reference an iconic and prestigious bag model, the artist elaborates her discourse on the construction and de-construction of the contemporary woman’s myth, by emphasising on high fashion’s impact.
