A raíz de su atípico talento, la mujer de 21 años ha sido nominada a los “African Talent Awards”.

En los últimos días, la atención de los integrantes del comité de los “African Talent Awards” ha recaído sobre una joven artista de tan sólo 21 años, quien a través de Instagram ha exteriorizado la genialidad del arte que realiza utilizando su cabello. Se trata de Laeti Ky, quien además de posicionar un nuevo arte en la industria, ha logrado reabrir el debate entre sus seguidores sobre las derechos a los que no tienen acceso las mujeres en la sociedad actual.

Sus obras de arte son ampliamente ovacionadas por sus seguidores, quienes ya superan los 55 mil en su cuenta personal de Instagram. La impresionante creatividad de sus obras de arte ha desencadenado que éstas se hayan vuelto viral en poco tiempo, a raíz de lo cual hoy se encuentra nominada a los “African Talent Awards”.

#metoo Thousands of women are raped every day in the world, but very few are able to talk about it, to complain or fight. Why? Because our "beautiful" society has the tendency to blame the victim almost every time. "" Oh but you should not have to gone out so late !!! "" "" "Ah, but you had a mini skirt" "," "why are you complaining if you agreed to have dinner with him?" "," "dont tell me that you were not trying to seduce him with all that makeup" "… Ladies … NOTHING JUSTIFIES RAPE, SEXUAL ASSAULT OR HARASSMENT. Neither your clothing, your make-up, your relationship with the abuser (because even your husband doesnt have the right to force you to have sex if you dont want to, the concept of marital rape exists). There is no enabling circumstance for the abuser and you need to talk about it so that thing starts to change. Don't remain silent, dont let anyone tell you that you have some responsibility in this despicable act !!!! Speak out because you dont have to carry this burden alone, talk to help other women who are afraid, talk to start a revolution, talk to change things. You are not alone. Dont be discouraged even if your direct surrounding makes you feel guilty … the weight can be difficult to sustain and the battle can be hard but it is worth it !!!!!! It's never too late to speak out. Even if the assault took place 20 years ago, a crime remains a crime so dare to speak out …. dont let anything pass… so those men learn to honor and respect women . Because yes, it is not for you to interfere with your liberty so that they are not tempted but for them to know how to control themself. I repeat it once more, dare to talk about it, dare to SNITCH ON YOUR PIGS… talk to the people around you so they can bring you all the support that the victims desperately need to start the process of healing… My DM is open to anyone who wants to talk. You are not alone.

Ky demora entre 20 minutos y dos horas en ejecutar las esculturas, el mismo tiempo por el que se prolonga el desmontaje de la obra. Debido a que el pelo debe trenzarse de forma minuciosa para poder lograr las formas deseadas, la joven de 21 años debe desenredarlo cuidadosamente para que éste no se debilite.

Uno de los frentes de lucha que puede identificarse a través de los mensajes que exhibe en sus publicaciones, alude a la objetivización que sufre y/o experimenta la mujer en la sociedad actual, la cual debe enfrentar el mundo a través de irreales estándares de belleza y conceptos sociales sobre cómo debe actuar y cuál debe ser su rol en la vida. 

“Estoy enferma y cansada del photoshop. Muéstrenme algo natural”.
