In Elektra KB’s Theocratic Republic of Gaia, a brainwashed army of genderless humanoids struggles to quash a guerrilla uprising led by a troupe of seditious dancing warriors. Bare breasted and tutu clad, their lips and eyes hidden by veils or obscured by black bars, these Cathara Insurgent Women recur as prominent characters in the artist’s photographs, videos, artist books, and collage works on fabric, usually operating as allegories for resistance. “The veil has been used in every culture in the world, and it always suggests a hiding,” KB says. “So I started using that motif, as well as silhouettes or shadows, as a signifier of repression that functions basically like redacted text.”
