Zipper Device that Shows if I Want to Have Sex or Not shows the artist wearing a device attached to their pants’ zipper. The ritualistic performance takes place in several public areas of the University of Victoria, introducing an inefficient solution to the problem of consent and sexual desire on college campuses.
Kosar Movahedi’s practice explores space; how our bodies take it up, hold it and are shaped by it. Through drawing, sculpture, photography, and video, she combines minimalist aesthetics with tongue-in-cheek humour to examine the relationship between us and our social, political, and physical environments. Kosar holds a BSc in Architecture from University of Tehran and is an MFA candidate at the University of Victoria.
