Hester Scheurwater on Sincerely Not Yours:
With "Sincerely Not Yours" I portrayed women who responded to my call to pose for my camera. I wanted to show these women, who have an affinity with my drive and work, in their im|perfect nakedness. I have tried to express their strength in my photos. With these images, I provide a visual commentary on a one-sided image of women in the media.
My ambivalence towards that image of women as an object is central to this. In "Sincerely Not Yours" the imperfect has sometimes become perfect. That is why I "signed" this pamphlet, this visual letter in public space, with a series of confronting self-portraits. The distribution of hundreds of postcards, stickers, zines, and posters in the public space is part of this letter as a visual pamphlet "Sincerely Not Yours".
Sincerely Not Yours,
In this solo exhibition, Hester Scheurwater shows a selection of photos that were previously distributed as a visual pamphlet: "Sincerely Not Yours".
Ellis Kat opened the exhibition. Ellis Kat (1993) is a freelance curator, writer, moderator, and feminist collecting cheesy pick-up lines. You can download her speech from the link at the bottom of this page.
"Sincerely Not Yours" was realized with an R&D subsidy from the CBK Rotterdam.
