brownkidd September 8, 2011 Uncategorized Girls On Bikes – A Public Installation Project by INSA Having “girls on bikes” and street artist INSA together in the same sentence should paint a pretty vivid picture in your brain box. Most likely a picture of provocatively-dressed curvy ladies in sweet footwear. On bikes. And that’s EXACTLY what it is, but we don’t hate it one bit. The artist describes the project on his blog: In this set of photographic works the viewer is instantly confronted with a series of subjects fighting for attention. INSA orchestrates a conflicting dialogue between all the elements and explicitly subordinates the value of his own street art to both the possessed object of the bike and the overtly sexualized female presence. Thus questioning our individual perceptions of the ownership of public space, of sexuality and of belonging(s). And by using the colour spectrum as a simple narrative INSA unifies this series of walls that were painted across the globe.” Translation: Graffiti is cool. Bikes are cool. Ass and titties are cooler.
