Reading #9

” Modern life, with its essentially industrial momentum, has processed our worlds and our bodies into dissociated fetishised, ultimately empty and machinable elements.”

This is an art work of an analysis of “beauty” — from the seduction of consumerism to the fetishisation of the female body. The female body is wrapped with the golden fabric, representing the idea of female body has treated as a commodity in contemporary society.

“The desire for the right image..alienates women from themselves, turning them into automatons.”

“The body which is produced is a disciplined, streamlined and modernist body, in which the outer discipline of the corset has given away to the inner disciplines of diet and exercise.”
