Stretching limits


This project offers a glimpse into an inner look of the body.

it creates tension between revulsion from the body and reconciliation with it.

I use gymnastics leotards:

That represent thinness, tenderness, discipline of the body. In order to force the body to be part of a regime that is alien to it.

The Leotards allow me to examine my body which doesn’t fit into the beauty ideal.

these hips are big hips

they need space to

move around in.

they don’t fit into little

petty places. these hips

are free hips. […]

homage to my hips, Lucille Clifto
