"Big’Uns" byDayna Danger

Women identified, trans, trans* and non-binary individuals often lack power over their own sexuality through misrepresentation, objectification, and violence in various types of media, from fashion magazines, to music videos, mainstream porn, and even hunting magazines.

Big’Uns is a photographic portrait series that explores the reclaiming of sexuality and our bodies. 

Sport hunting uses a language that is violent and oppressive.  An example of this is the common term “Big’uns” to refer to an animal’s antlers. Even though antlers come from a male animal, they are fetishized as being female breasts. These photographs are an act of reclaiming power over our own sexualities.

Dayna Danger is an emerging Métis/Polish/Ojibway artist. From August 2010 to 2011 she was an Aboriginal studio work-study in The Banff Centre. In the winter of 2012 she was part of “Trading Post,” an Aboriginal residency at The Banff Centre. In 2011 her work was displayed at the New Mexico Museum of Art for Santa Fe’s Indian Market.
