The piece is from a series of collages titled Vogue that set up elusive relationships between images taken from various magazines and medical books. The cutouts are arranged in a way that fashion photography becomes a dissonant space, questioning the use of the body in advertising, its objectification, obsessions with the appearance, and the privileging of the surface.
