Miss Art World
Success in pageantry proved to be both my salvation as well as a burden. At twelve my sight began deteriorating with no cure. The rejection and prejudices I experienced in academia led me to seek out other means of fulfillment; this came in the form of beauty pageants.
Being both an insider and outsider of mainstream “beauty” I critique the unrealistic display of the “perfected” physical form through performance art. As self-elected Miss Art World, I question the dominating ideologies of beauty fused with the disturbing and obsessive struggle to obtain it.
