Portraits of the artists, where the cut-off breast is replaced by vegetables and fruits. Part of the series of works "Amazon Armor," dedicated to breast modification after double mastectomy.
“Amazonian Armors” is an interdisciplinary few-in-one sculptural/fashion/performance and media project rooting from the Greek myth about the Amazons–women warriors, who cut off their breasts to be more effective in archery. It reflects women identity in relation to body shape. In focus are double-mastectomy breast cancer survivors. The purpose of the project is to not only create awareness about the crisis of identity that accompanies the trauma of cancer, but to look at these events from the brighter side—as a necessary for continuation of life body modification, which creates new and freer feeling of self.
