Funny Woman, 2018



Funny Woman makes commentary about the notion of the ‘funny woman' trope, the idea of having a woman speak and the audience laughing at her because of how absurd her humanity is. The female narrative becomes a punch line of a story and nothing else. The constant laughter in the background deprives the audience of hearing the women’s narratives due to the audience's need for the comedic relief. Laughing at our narratives is malicious and does nothing but silence us and erases us from the picture.
