Mayako Murai examines the post-feminist aesthetics of guro kawaii (grotesque cute) re-envisionings of fairy tales in contemporary Japanese women artists' work. Junko Mizuno's fairy-tale manga flaunts female sexuality in a grotesquely distorted way so as to disrupt gender stereotypes propagated by traditional tales. Miwa Yanagi's photographic recasting creates an all-female narrative space where desire is oriented towards a radical sameness. Tomoko Konoike's work, instead of retelling old stories, evokes a different narrative desire through its intensely sensuous texturisation. The fairy-tale uncanny gives the viewer freedom to explore alternative modes of desiring in a post-feminist and post-humanist age.
