Can you feel this, princess?
2013, 180x70cm, foam matress, 28 epilators
The work refers to the popular fairy tale The Princess and the Pea by Hans Christian Anderson. The object is shaped like a Fakir’s bed of nails, insinuating discomfort, pain and at the same time infantile naivité. It is a comment on the demands on the contemporary beauty industry and the phantasmal world of Barbie culture.
