ABSTRACT: How do you resist something that you feel ambivalent about? Can things be partially resisted, while still existing within the dominant system? For example, can I still be a feminist while loving the colour pink? These are the types of questions that led to the creation of Ambivalently Yours, an anonymous persona that explores ambivalence through drawings, public interventions and blog posts. ( My small acts of resistance as Ambivalently Yours are meant as conversation starters, acts of compassion and examples of active-yet-ambivalent resistance. My illustrated text presents an overview of this web- and illustration-based artistic practice.

AMBIVALENTLY YOURS is an anonymous web-based artist. Her work is fuelled by seven years of professional experience in Montreal’s fashion industry juxtaposed with a simultaneous investment in feminist art. Both seduced and disheartened by the portrayal of femininity and feminism in Western society, the exploration of her ambivalence is central to her artistic practice. ambivalently[dot]yours[at]gmail[dot]com;
