Implants

Amy Elizabeth’s “Implants” is a nine-piece sculptural series. It depicts the idealized female nude in the form of urban shop mannequins – an ever-so generic image of femininity – contorted and dismembered with vibrant, ornate flowers blooming from where hair would naturally flourish on a mature woman’s body.

 

Through utilizing physical proxies for women (dismembered mannequins) and their hair (ephemeral plant-life) “Implants” becomes an investigative work, bringing to the audience’s attention their own personal reaction to the scene placed before them in a point-blank gallery context.

 

Implants” questions not the right of the Contemporary woman to do with her body what she pleases, as it is a feminist piece; however what is thrown into question is a woman’s emotive reaction to her own choice – guilt?  Pride?  Disgust?

 

Through “Implants”, a situation is orchestrated where the issue of women’s actions towards her own body is viewed by the audience - put under the microscope, as women are, every time they decide to shave their underarms or wax their pubic hair - through the objectification of the female form, which is the irony of the work as a whole.
