Just Desserts focuses on women’s relationship to power, hunger, love through frosting and begs the question; can cake make everything better? The photographs feature brightly colored cakes documented in sexually significant locations. The cakes serve as monuments that celebrate both the good and bad aspects of relationships with blunt humor. Additionally, Jillian will be releasing a zine comprised of photos of food, screenshots of texts, and poems, dealing with the underlying violence of pleasure and maybe even pleasure of violence.

About the artist:

Jillian is an artist living and working in Chicago. She holds a BFA in Studio Art and a BA in Anthropology from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Jillian’s work focuses on the preservation of personal narratives through photography and text.
