MONTH OF PHOTOGRAPHY - DisplayIn the exhibition DISPLAY, the dictates of beauty are “put on display” and light is shed on the power of advertising and market in regards to the body in general and more particularly, concerning the idealized feminine body. Our body is subject to and undergoes many changes as a result of varying societal norms, ideals of beauty, ever-changing discourses on hygiene, fashion trends as well as technological innovations. The norms of the body-concept can especially be observed in binary gender constructs, in the connotation of gestures and poses as being either “feminine” or “masculine”. The four exhibited artists question the limited concept of body and established norms in their photographic works and installations using artistic methods such as appropriation, hyperbole and reordering.
