Personal Project, 2019
“Shame Shame” series is a continuation of the “Scenery” series that questions our societal views of the human body and sexuality. Nudity is taboo, yet soft-porn imagery is everywhere. Sexualisation is openly abundant in our society, yet media censorship tells us our bodies are indecent - “Our bodies are shameful, we have to hide!”
When I started my illustration career, Instagram censored my works showing female body parts even though the style was far from explicit. I then played with the boundaries of the censorship algorithm, adding flying. birds or sceneries into the images, finding these details would keep the post from being deleted. My creative practice has become a process of reclaiming ownership of my own sexuality.
