30 DAY REACH 136

Through heavy wearable sculptures and the use of my own body in a performance for the camera, this work points to the explicit and implicit violence of the beauty pageant culture in Venezuela. Three steel crowns and sashes are worn in a video-performance, during which I stand in a small podium trying to balance the heavy and sharp objects.
