living image


By appropriating the image of a typical dance icon of commercial sexuality, the performance shows the social pressure on the body, confronted with the painful rituals that individuals perform on their own bodies on a daily basis in order to achieve a constructed beauty ideal. A seemingly healthy body loses its functionality due to a specific beauty supplement. It becomes limited, apparently mutilated and transformed. The distortion of the image of the extremely erotic body introduces doubts about its desirability.
