this person does not exist

This project began from my existing research into the body. I started to investigate objectification by merging the human body with objects. This interest in common objects developed, I found the combination of the sexual with the domestic interesting. Thus the domestic became a theme in my research pieces, where I mix mundanity with the erotic.
My drawings and sculptures often show incomplete bodies. As a result of objectification we are more likely to identify a woman from a body part, whereas we only recognise man if shown the whole person.

To investigate the flesh that fascinates me, I looked then at meat, often sexualised in a similar way to women, to make the consumer feel good about eating it.With polyurethane I was able to make multiple plastic chickens, referencing commodity and consumption. I display them as if on a rotisserie and accompany them with a menu, which ironically gives them personalities, based on those of a sex robot, named Roxxxy.
