Shame Shame

Personal Project, 2019

“Shame Shame” series is a continuation of the “Scenery” series that questions media censorship when soft-porn imagery is so saturated in our society, and our societal views of human body and sexuality where sexualisation is openly abundant while nudity is taboo- Our body is 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.
