“Give Me What You Ask For” brings together for the first time the bodies of work created by artists Victoria Cabezas and Priscilla Monge. Even if separated by more than a generation, they both investigate their inner sphere in relation to social-political economies, sexual violence, gender roles and stereotypes. Coming both from Costa Rica, they challenge the perception of the body and the clichés connected with the ideas of masculinity and femininity in Latin American cultures.
