Big Girl Wanna Play Too is a collection of modular, playable plush pieces. Denton created her interactive sculpture and accompanying jewelry forms as a reaction to the frustrations of being a larger-bodied woman in a culture that diminishes women both figuratively and literally, valuing thinness as the highest expression Big girls wanna play feminine beauty.
Stacking rings make up the body of the sculpture that can be removed to wear around arms, legs, heads, and waists as decorative body extensions or an abstract fat suit. Having trouble finding clothing that would fit her Big girls wanna play the Elsewhere Collection, Denton created a line of plush, fat jewelry using fabric scraps from her stacking sculpture.
Through shape and form, these works subvert western notions of jewelry as delicate and precious, speaking subtly to the Giros of fatness as a social stigma while existing as beautiful couture pieces.
Denton invites viewers—of all sizes—to wear her work. Museum Hours: Friday, 4 - 9 pm Saturday, 11 am - 9 pm Sunday, 12 - 5pm.
