Look at that Beauty
The installation tells my humorous story trying to costumize the design of my old 125ccm Honda motorbike until it matches my own beauty perceptions and standards. The installation consists of video and photography.
The video shows an instagram story of the design process. While treating the vehicle with paint and finish, hydro dipping its flanks and sanding out scars, I simultanousely recover from an accident.
The idea was to research and compare the possibilities of tuning my body as well as my motorbike. After finishing the redesigned bike I posed naked next to it. I am wearing nothing but matching nails and hair.
My face is never shown in the pictures. Since the female body is often used for advertising and reduced to its design / appearance I decided on leaving it out, in the more fashion-like pictures. However, you can see me create, design and work in the video.
