Notes


Tall poppy syndrome or cutting down the tall poppy, is a cultural phenomenon mostly used in Europe and Australia in which people hold back, criticise or sabotage those who have or are believed to have achieved notable success in one or more aspects of life, particularly intellectual or cultural wealth. 

This piece is inspired by this phenomenon and artist personal life experiences.  It depicts limitations and obstacles one faces as a rising woman in a certain cultural or geographical situation. It talks about how people may not be prepared for you to rise and change and try to cut you down to stay where you are.

“I believe everything around us is constantly shifting and changing, and this applies to identity and culture too. We cannot keep them fixed; it’s their nature to be in flux, and that scares us. We control, cut, fix, label, and stereotype to feel secure - but that creates conflict and tension in the world”. Yasmin N
