Feminist Project Features Morbid Depictions Of Common Beauty Rituals
Photographic and visual artist Jessica Ledwich has come up with a feminist art series entitled ‘The Fanciful, Monstrous Feminine’ that features morbid depictions of common beauty rituals.
In one gruesome image, a woman has her fingers severed and replaced with the sharp tools used for manicures, and in another, body parts such as the limbs and internal organs are up for sale.
She said that her project explores the fact that throughout “history, the bodies of women have been represented as a threatening form of sexuality”.
