The Holy Beauty Project (THBP) is a series of artworks incorporating different media such as painting, drawing, video and performance. It examines the seductive power of images and the representation of women as a means to communicate and consolidate social norms as well as ideals of beauty and morality.
The multi-media project juxtaposes catholic iconography and contemporary imagery, setting a parallel between ancient and current icons (celebrities, fashion models, pop and rock stars, etc). It also questions boundaries between masculine and feminine, Latin-American and European, ancient and contemporary.
Art book project made in collaboration with Swedish artist and costume designer Jonna Bergelin, inspired by the books “On the Road” by Jack Kerouac and “Off the road” by Carolyn Cassady. The final result is a photography book, titled Comme des Filles, that was exhibited at Stockholm, Sweden Gallery Grafiska Sällskapet.
