Postcards from Mooste


The humoristic self-therapeutic photo project by feminist artist Ingrīda Pičukāne is a tribute to body positivity and sexiness. The artist had not worn shorts for over twenty years, since her early teens, when a friend pointed out that a girl with legs as fat as hers should never wear a mini skirt. Further comments from others convinced Ingrīda that her fat legs should be kept concealed. In summer 2018, while staying at the MoKS residency in the Estonian town of Mooste municipality, she finally felt her body positivity chakra open and experienced an irresistible urge to feel the wind and sun on her legs and belly ‒ accepting her own body.

Although Postcards from Mooste is a record of personal experience, it also questions the accepted norms of body representation born as a result of social pressure.
