Goodman once again examines the impact and influences the media and the film industry has on the formation of desire and desirability through repetition in her two dramatically different sequin series. We are all familiar with the disembodied glossy, luscious, lips that are plastered across billboards and magazines. They are in essence the signifier of the desirable body: the unattainable, mirage of perfection that teases and taunts us. Goodman’s sequin lips ripple and shimmer, refusing to hold their form, whilst remaining disembodied (w)holes: they are both iconic and ironic. Just as lipstick is applied to be smudged off, the image does not hold.
