Femininus at Horizon Festival


According to Jungian Psychology there are seven feminine archetypes that prevail in contemporary society today – the mother, the maiden, the queen, the huntress, the wise woman, sage and the lover. The presence of these archetypes account for the major differences among women. Award-winning milliner and designer Melanie Jeffers, in collaboration with choreographer Melissa Lanham, present FEMININUS (Latin for feminine); a unique and hybrid exhibition of the seven archetypes of the feminine form. The project will feature three main components; an opening night with a performance, an exhibition and workshops. The exhibition will display the seven FEMININUS characters presented alongside a video display of the opening night performance.
