Je m’intéresse au concept de peau et de race ainsi que ce qu’ils impliquent. […] L’idée de beauté est devenue globalisée, créant des aspirations homogènes, en entraînant une distorsion de l’image que les gens ont d’eux-mêmes, à travers la planète.

I am interested in the concept of skin and race, and what they imply; in the ideas and theories sown into our flesh that change with the arc of time. I believe skin and the body, are often distorted into a topographical division between reality and illusion. The idea of beauty has become globalised, creating homogenous aspirations, and distorting people’s self-image across the planet.

​​In my film, I focus on African women’s self-image, through memories and interviews; using mixed media to describe this almost schizophrenic self-visualization that I and many others have grown up with.

This is my thesis film made at the Royal College of Art 2012.
Total running time: 6mins 47Secs.
