Vanities / The implicated body
A myth about female beauty has taken root in our society through the means of mass communication as a kind of social model and control. Vanidades (Vanities) is the title of a well-known women’s magazine, as well as a universal concept. In her proposal, Violette Bule uses the female body as a message, made possible by rereadings from the contemporary appropriation and representation of nudes. The artist rethinks the stereotypes proper to our visual culture through the leading media aesthetics in contraposition to the artistic nude set forth as a consumer object -symbol and message-, but also as a witness of a possible transformation within the performative act in photography.
