When Eve and Adam disobeyed God’s command their eyes were opened, they saw that they were naked. Feeling shame, they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.
To lift the shame off our shoulders, to get it off our chests, let’s dare to un-cover. Search for the openings, create the little gaps and holes; let heavy feelings whirl out and consent find a way in. The notion of NO SHAME is our call to a movement and transformation, to stand even more lucid, more articulate, more clear. Let the power of freedom circulate.
We have been made to feel ashamed of our bodies, and in return, learnt to shame those of others. Let‘s break the vicious circle, let’s take control, let‘s not be ashamed, but be free. Let‘s make paradise real. Together, we can recreate Eden!
Today, the internet tells us to cover up and censor our bodies. It could have been such a paradise for us to play, express and push limits, a place where we could direct and curate ourselves. But we find ourselves reintroducing the modern day fig leaves; two little cherries, a star, a pink heart to carefully place on the parts we are told to hide. Online, our bodies are so easily banned but in reality no body is illegal, we should all feel free to have no shame.
