A Chick. Art project about objectification of women

Kinbaku-bi (緊縛美) — literally means ‘the beauty of tight binding’. Designated to work with woman’s body. It is an allusion to restrain woman as a prisoner, being a symbol of dominating her.

1

Woman’s body is being sold in different ways. It’s perceived as a trade unit or a thing of a small worth.
2

It is exposed to you in the ways that please you.

3

A woman is bound to this image and is never free.

4

The society totally approves of it. So you get used to that too.

5

And you don’t see there is something wrong with that.

6

A chick is your mother, your sister, your girlfriend, your wife, your daughter.

A Chick

It is an experimental story. A story of anyone, done through only one image that was taken with different aperture size: so that in the beginning you see a chick as it is, but then it starts to fade away and you can see less details. The same picture gets bleaker and bleaker until only a few contours are visible. That's the way we get used to what we are exposed to. After a while the feeling that something is wrong with that dissolves, leaving us totally blind to the matter. Berlin, 2014.
