My intervention in printed fashion and lifestyle magazines only leaves the garments, postures, patterns and objects surroundings bodies visible. The remaining gaps trouble the assumptions of gender normativity as it reveals its ambiguous fragility. By erasing each bare body part visible, I wanted to point at the complex layers operating in the expression of identity beyond any gender assignation to bodies. ⤿2013

↘︎ I have also made gaps made in magazines oriented for ‘men’ readership such as Men’s Health, Esquire or Cosmopolitan and Elle for ‘women’ readership. The last ones are from GlamCult.
