Chiffon Couture Made Dress and Lace Mask, Metal Hooks, Steel Horse Bite, Elastic Horse Reins
"Couture of Desire" delves into the interplay between pleasure and pain within the human body manifested through costume-based assemblages and installations accompanied by elements of performance.
This project explores the conflicting emotions of desire and control and how they might impact the feeling of experiencing pain and pleasure. I am delving into the realm of sexual autonomy and desire for control where fantasy serves as a catalyst for self-descent into psychological turmoil. Through the transgressive forms of the sculptural costumes and object-based installation, it explores how to confront the singularity of internal and external aspects of human physiology.
