SHINY is a multidisciplinary performance that explores and challenges the beauty standards enforced upon women through mass media. The work explores the masking and erasure of the individual through the bizarre sameness of the beauty standard and magnifies the surreal, the grotesque, the mundane and the violence involved in the quest for ‘perfection’.
