Postage stamp, something to write home about is a performance by Nooshin Rostami. In her work she studies the threats of habituation to beliefs, rituals, and customs in human society. In her performance she presents the audience with a seemingly torturous, yet widely adopted practice which constitutes a crucial part of what is known as conventional “beauty.”
By providing the audience with convenient conditions to witness an agonizing performance, she aims to remind one of how we become dismissive to an act of brutality the sole raison d’être of which is to fit in with the values of our society.
“Postage stamp, something to write home about” is one of the popular “styles” of Brazilian epilation of women’s pubic hair.
