Signifiable explores how our perceptions of symbols changes depending on our culture. The body is a vexed object that influences discourses of identity, power dynamics, language, politics, and visual culture; it is something to be studied and analyzed. My work fragments the body to fabricate an image that defies my own notions of idealized femininity, it is a reconfiguration of grotesque and unusual closeness with beauty and symmetry. The interplay of the beautiful and the grotesque and the fine line between them.
