be yourself (20 versions)
by Sabine Kontny

Inspired by the sentence of Marina Abramovic: "Art must be beautiful. Artist must be beautiful" (1975),
"be yourself (20 versions)" deals with common patterns of ideals of beauty in the representation of
the female body in fashion and society. In doing so, Sabine uses the canning rubber like
a piece of clothing that needs to be presented, testing its possibilities and limitations and thus surrendering more and more to the rhythm of the object itself.
