Frida y Magdalena by Magdalena Tritscher


Inspired by the life of suffering of Frida Kahlo it has been the aim to create an object deforming the body. One of these objects are corsets and they have been a major source of inspiration for my artwork. From a medical point of view, the corset provides posture to support healing. In contrast to that a body-forming object has been created, which does not push the body into the correct position, but deforms it. The body is bulled by weights into an unnatural position. It is an attempt to present the combination of mental an physical health problems without suppressing artificial expression and work.
