New Girl In Town

40 original drawings, felt-pen on A4 paper

video on DVD, duration 3min

Artists Minna Haukka and Paulina Pukyte, in a sense “new girls in town” (in London) themselves, collected posters, handmade by workers of illegal brothels in Soho, London. These amateur designs are childish, almost sweet handiworks – in stark contrast to the business they advertise. Taken out of context the words here can be about anyone of us – the way we might like to describe ourselves or to be described. This work is also about stereotypes and preconceptions we employ so often in our lives without giving it any thought, without even noticing, without hearing the real meaning of the words.
