You Are Beautiful, 2019

Description

‘’You are beautiful’’, 2019 speculates on how much our personal identity, sexuality and consciousness is shaped by both external and internal forces. It’s a meditation on vulnerability and how fragile and exposed we can feel under someone else’s judgments and the expectations of social norms. This sense of vulnerability and self-protection is symbolised through the covered nipples of the breast-shaped detailing around the vase, while the rose ribbons are made from lingerie, alluding to a space of intimacy and care shared both with oneself and with another person. The images at the bottom of the vase tell the story of a gentle Chelsea FC fan in his pink bathroom with a yellow rubber duck and cushions with kittens as a playful subversion of macho masculinity, gender roles and societal expectations.
