Coco Papy
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Gowanus



ARTIST STATEMENT: I explore contradictions of femininity and cultural identity, while touching on ideas of the nightmare of femininity, the female grotesque and the plasticization and social distortion of images of women. I play with materials and a process that explore my complicated relationship towards this idea and of the actuality and the fantasy presented. On one hand, the way these images lead us to define what is a valued body- the tinier, thinner, lighter, whiter, blonder- female bodies that seem to disappear, as culturally gold. On the other hand, I am simultaneously thrilled by their good-looking appeal, shiny retouched quality, and the fantasy and possibility they want to present.
