Description of the piece:

"She lived (un)happily according to society's expectations and died of (un)natural causes." The pressure, the expectations and the objectification of a woman's body can be unforgiving, creating an insidous lack of emotional satiety and palpable lingering diseases.

Kenji Yip Tong for their piece, A Neo's Progress

Description of the piece:

When thinking of the theme for this years’ exhibition there is one case of truly unforgiving bodies that sprung to mind, namely the one of feeling like your entire body does not belong to you. Wanting to sculpt with clay, I decided to create bodies about to undergo surgery. The colour choices were meant to distract from the cold and clinical atmosphere and invoke a sense of pride in the markings that will become future scars.
