The Beauty, The Beast

Photo Series

2021

In this series, the artist is in interaction with different kinds of animal flesh. Putting raw goose skin, raw beef, raw chicken meat and minced pork on herself, the artist engages in communication with these objects, reflecting on the manifestation of animal instincts humans are naturally endowed with. A series of self-portraits explore the artist's animal monster. The process of self-identification involves the acceptance of her animal flesh.

Modern society's aesthetic of selfies uses technology, such as AR filters, set up to alter and change visual representation, through the imposition of various digital masks. The artist uses the same technique in this series, layering herself with animal flesh, imitating the biological processes of life and death.
