Flashing Bodies / Action Nine / 'UGLY'
Completely Naked presents the Flashing Bodies (Action 9) 'UGLY' / PART ONE
at Apiary Studios (London).
An interactive tableau on Sunday 23rd February 2014.
A closed doors performance in front of the camera (video & photography).
Are we ugly? An exploration of cannons of beauty with special emphasis on women's world today.
PART 2: The Women Voice coming soon…
Am I UGLY?
Are our bodies acceptable by the media standards?
Shall I shave?
Shall I diet?
Shall I join a gym?
Shall I have surgery?
Or shall I hide?
Shall I have a tattoo? What about a piercing?
Is it OK to modify my body?
Would I dare to undress? I’m I terrified of nakedness?
Is nakedness freedom?
Or is revolution?!
Is your body a weapon?
Are women’s bodies seen equally as men’s bodies?
Are older bodies more or less interesting?
Is it all right to find the human body sexy?
What my body says about me?
Is time to start feeling confident with our bodies; they are who we are!
We want to put a special focus on this action about what it means to be a woman today. With a new wave of feminism, strong women, movements like FEMEN and Pussy Riot and new attitudes versus the old collapsing men's world!
Part Two Coming Soon...
