Bloody Pixy’s Experimental Relationship

In an interesting twist on the misogynistic man theory, Brooklyn-based Yijun Liao (a.k.a. Bloody Pixy) has set out to illustrate a relationship where the woman has the upper hand in her “Experimental Relationship” series. Liao claims that she has always questioned what people would consider a “typical” relationship, and she has always felt compelled to answer questions like what would happen if a man and a woman exchanged their sexual and power roles, and what this relationship does to a man and a woman? She has come up with a medley of humorous and thought-provoking situations to illustrate her experimental relationship theory, accompanied by blurbs to describe each photo. They are important to the meaning of the photographs, so make sure to read them!
