Dressing table

Watching is not always seeing. We often ridicule past norms and customs based on our present progress. But when it comes to our current traditions we hesitate to challenge the rationality. Perhaps our adoption intrudes the transparency of perception.

This project is concerned about the physical vulnerability of women due to the absurd definition of being beautiful given and practiced in a contemporary society.  The demands of having certain skin color, height, body hair with precise coverage, explicit facial and body features etc force women not to appreciate their physical differences. Tolerating pain, doubting individual attributes, suffering from unhealthy practices makes the chase of beauty a never-ending run at being no one.
