Young women, naked, are piled on top of one another. Around them, shoots emerge, leaves unfurl, and flowers bloom profusely. The women’s bodies appear to have become one with nature.
Their black wigs and bright red lipstick convey the stereotyped way that a woman is viewed, here deliberately conjured up by each of the participants. As she grows, a girl suddenly becomes aware of fashion and begins to think of herself as a woman.
That process is expressed by this strange ensemble of such mutants (the results of permanent, unprogrammed change) huddled together to represent the way that the process becomes a group activity.
