Minus the flashy sets, costumes and props, artist Elise Boudreau Graham mimics the choreography, from subtle shrugs to full body convulsions, used in Beyoncé’s Run The World (Girls) music video. Graham operates within the pop icon’s system as a method of revealing the essence of both Beyoncé and her own body language. This Goes Out To All My Girls probes pop culture and its use of female icons as conduits to perpetuate damaging abstractions of femininity.

Elise Boudreau Graham is an interdisciplinary artist whose work transpires in the space between personal relationships and the politics of the everyday. She likes to read critical theory, watch bad television, and take to the streets. She lives and works in Halifax, Nova Scotia and will receive a BFA from NSCAD University in Spring 2013.
