Sand bag body, explosion of tools, steel table, 2021
Love Bomb reflects the aftermath of an abusive relationship, a physical representation of how the mental manipulation of love bombing can affect a person. Small acts of psychological abuse slowly over time, degrades your self worth, as you are being metaphorically ripped apart limb from limb. A sandbag body mirrors the weight women carry around placed by a society where they are constantly battling the male gaze. Love bomb aims to visualise a truth that demands this attention away from the ideal, the fragmented body fights against the patriarchal visualisations of women, taking away from the gaze and owning our own bodies, being powerful through our vulnerability.
