"Vajazzling Series" -
28” x 28”, Plexi Mounted Metallic Prints
The Vajazzling Series mimics the American fashion trend with the same name (advertized to be done for special occasions). It was both conceptualized and produced in New York using the Village Voice to meet the models – the photographic works of adorned, nude female torsos are a response to the commodification of the female body and its use in the media. The project aims to take an assertive position on the female form: the women stand proudly before the camera, showing off what is usually hidden in full exposure. The “I DO” emblazoned across their pubic region is meant to be an ambiguous statement – to be interpreted as a wish? a declaration? a question?
