The Georgian video and photo artist discusses society’s ideals and clichés by transforming pictures of beauties in glossy magazines. Her collage-like images confront the perfect world of fashion models with Barbie dolls and sweet teddy bears which involuntarily evoke childhood memories. By adding these seemingly harmless toys, Kapanadze creates a particular ambiguity and contrast between the idealized world of the grown-ups and the not-so-innocent children’s accessories on the other hand.
