This is an exhibition exploring the creative collective unconscious driving dreams and

fantasy towards creativity and new thought. The individual is captured within the natural
surroundings to fall back into this world and break down the physical self revealing and
inspiring the truism of the artist’s, removing the labels placed on the female or the male,

Make Love To The World’ moves between the super-real and everyday instinctual
routines whether human created or naturally spawned exploring the stigmas surrounding
male and female roles beyond the associative constructs of the human body. The
relative perspective towards physicality allows for an intuitive and communal dream-like
experience.

The exhibition explores the primitive senses that expose our magnetic relationship within
nature. In the form of interactive installation, the set-up is instrumentally individualised to
encourage the audience to embrace their innate sexuality presenting the youth –
female/male – without judgment, equal and falling back into their birth through dissolving
the boundary between surreal candid moments present the subjects as the modern
humans, relfecting components of the new technological world and its ricochet effects on
human nature.

In the form of photography, sound, video and technology, the concept overflows beyond
the physical realm, to a space of interaction, online and dual overseas happenings.
Exploring her community of creative. Making love is the by-product of extending our
human unconscious and create a birth of the new, beyond sexism, toward sex, and
forcing the eye back into natural state of being. Whether in nature or that created by our
human induced nature amongst the city and our religions, to put trust back in our human
instincts and sexuality, beyond raunchy culture to suggest freedom, and form away from
labels by breaking down the concepts of homogenized identity created by the consumer,
and hope to inspire new thought.

Photographing and collaborating with musicians and artists the conversation begins in
the fused community beyond the medium, STRICKER hopes to inspired the individual to
dream and make love to the world, through humor, the female gaze and rue less nature.

The show presents the youth, female, male, equal and falling back into their birth
whether in the mind or physically, through constructed surreal candid moments, and
look into the eye of the human creations of the city and its natural state, to allow new
thought, view our environment, and challenge any ideals set within ones constructed
world of thought.
