Maimu Brushwood: Venus as a Boy

In this video performance Maimu Brushwood neé Huolirinta dances while listening to Björk’s “Venus as a Boy”. There is no voice in this video so you can only sense the rhythm of the body. Maimu Brushwood neé Huolirinta is the drag queen alter ego of Timo Tähkänen. Maimu’s art often reflects love, identity, growing pains – both in growing up in the shadows of norms as well as the painfulness of growing in weight. Maimu wants to believe in a better tomorrow, and in peace and love.
