Save Yourself (self-love self-portrait).
An illustration of self love aspirations playing with gendered scenarios such as Superman saving damsel-in-distress, Lois Lane. My superhero self rescues my naked self, embracing fluid interplays between empowerment, vulnerability, masculinity and femininity. Having willingly chosen to eat the fruit of (self) knowledge, we send a superhero(ine) signal to save yourself from heteronormative fantasies of romantic rescue.
