SCANDAL AQUA SERIES, THRILL SEEKERS LEAKED
With this artwork, we have taken inspiration from popular culture to criticize the absurdity of contemporary society. inspired by the political sex scandals erupted in 2012 (DSK, Weiner, Zhengfu etc), we provoke the suggestion that political sex scandals may be the perfect fit for our highly sexualized culture and its constant flow of entertainment spirit.
Pinar&Viola Scandal Aqua comprises a series of teenage style, girly beach towels that display overly self aware portraits of a fictitious politician. Together with, mirror self-shots of teen girls in their bathrooms, wrapped in these ecstatic pink towels trying to communicate with him.
