investigating perceptions of ideal beauty and femininity, ~VENUS~ aims to reconsider representations of female purity and perfection in popularised western art and film. kevill-davies uses humour as a vehicle to challenge the illusion of feminine perfection and mythology, toying with the viewers’ sense of reality through digital manipulation and scale distortion.
OPEN / 6pm through 9pm saturday the 24th of september 2016
east brisbane exhibition space / 41 latrobe street, east brisbane
