THE BODY POLITIC

I associated The Body Politic with the concerns of beauty and accepting the body politic is effectively accepting the institutions and mass Media’s interpretation of what beauty is. I wanted to take my project in a more eccentric direction. Instead of looking at what the institutions idea of beauty is, I looked in to what I class as real ‘beauty’. I felt collage would be an appropriate media to use as it allows my piece to grow organically and my creativity to run free within the pieces. I used images of people that aren't typically shown in today's media as they're not classed as 'beautiful' or don't fit the conventions. The Body Politic was exhibited at London West Gallery at University of Westminster.
