"against plastic surgery" (2012)
is a critical flashmob for which I created an artistic jumpsuit.
The aim of the project was to show something "one is against". Because I am definitely against the concept of plastic surgery I chose to deal with that topic. I have a kind of aversion just thinking about doing something so artificial and cruel to one's personal body. I was inspired by the signs and lines a cosmetic surgeon draws on the body of the patient before starting the operation. These signs made me think about the division of the body parts of animals for butcher's purposes. Like a dead animal will be cut to obtain the different types of meat, also the human body becomes victim of the knife. I sewed a padded jumpsuit and added embroidery in form of lines and words on it.
