From „I am not blonde“, 2022, Julia Peirone, Video still
A preview of the video work ‚I am not blonde‘ which accompanies the photo series ‚Some like it hot‘.

In her new series ‚Some like it hot‘, Julia Peirone asked girls and young women to create the iconic look of Marilyn Monroe. The camera stood in place of a mirror. In this intimate moment, the girls consciously or unconsciously explore how classic signifiers of femininity – painted lips, long eyelashes – can be a mask to hide behind or to gain power through.
