Botti Sili (2014)

Black and white print on white paper, color print on transparent sheet, 19,7 x 25,6 inch

// This is a superposition between a truncated representation of the three Graces (Sandro Botticelli, The Allegory of Spring, 1482) and the bust of two women outrageously retouched by several surgeries (Philip Toledano, A New Kind of Beauty, 2008 -2010). A confrontation between the new type of physical cannon that proposes plastic surgery today and a myth focused on symbols of seduction and fertility. Paradoxically appears a comparison of the figures revealing some connections that suggests the aberration of the notions of idealized beauty canon and natural body harmony.
