Montrealers Random Recipe & renowned street artist MissMe have released a video for “Hey Boy” (feat. Sunny Moonshine). The clip was directed by Montreal ‘Artful Vandal’ MissMe, an activist, feminist, and one of the most recognized outlaw artists in North America.
The beauty of women coming together and the deep trust they all had in each other and me, was once again, the proof that the legends of women being each other’s natural enemies, was FALSE. It’s hard to explain the unique uplifting that comes from experiencing the true love of the sisterhood. So many different womxn coming together for a common goal of creation, felt like a giant fuck you to the propaganda of womxn’s supposed natural competition. It felt like us, showing the world we love each other, and will always stand for each other, no matter how different we may seem. There’s a true connexion and love in the sisterhood. And that power may have been the treat that pushed to try to divide us in the first place.
From Random Recipe:
We met MissMe in Bologna, Italy, at the Fa / Arte Feminist Art Centre. We knew of her work but had never met her in person. In fact, we didn’t even know she was from Montreal! We all immediately expressed the wish to work together the moment we met. It was really magical to be able to kick off 2020 by shooting this video in the middle of January with her and this community of inspiring womxn. The power of this work of art lies in that very community gathered to express / put into images what is universal about feminine experience – as complex, diverse, fluid and multiple as it might be. The song addresses patriarchy through a sort of inversion : it imagines a utopian world in which men would no longer be in power. It’s a song we wrote in 2017 that came out in 2018. What is fascinating is that our own relationship to feminism – to the feminist standpoint -is constantly evolving year after year.
