The archetypes of what is strong and male versus what is weak, demure or feminine are in an interesting and poignant juxtaposition when viewing a ballerina. Clearly she is all that is feminine; she is graceful, beautiful and seemingly fragile, yet beneath the physical exterior lies and incredible athlete, strong, dominant in stage presence and not easily shattered. Likewise in this piece hard heavy industrial objects are places against the softness of tulle and elongated arms. The point is to make people question what really is strong, does strength negate feminity?
