Derby Kisses | Fresh Meat in Fishnets!

“I objectify the girls completely, but in the same way they objectify themselves,” Hyvönen writes. “With the kitsch, tacky, thoroughly questionable elegance, my aim is to capture the unapologetic representation of beauty that roller derby is all about.”

“You See, Honey, Sometimes When Mommy Gets Tired of Suburbia She Dresses Up and Beats Up Other Mommies. And, Sometimes, When Other Mommies Are Tired of Your Mommy, They Beat Her Until She Scars in Geometric Patterns”

Riikka Hyvönen: Roller Derby Kisses  at Gallery Saariaho Järvenpää(Merimiehenkatu 31, Helsinki, Finland) through February 21.
