Videos from social feeds, dating apps and makeup tutorials are played on the mobile devices that are stuck through the acrylic bodies. They become a projection surfaces. As empty shells these bodies have lost their individuality and self-determination. They hang from the ceiling on butcher hooks, becoming a passive product, reproducing the vicious circle that female bodies still have to endure today. This installation was funded as part of the ‘Digifem’ 2019 at Kampnagel Hamburg.
