‘Body Body Commodity is concerned with the commodification of the female body in relation to consumerism and capitalism.

Equally visceral and visual, an all female cast animate a mass of foam objects, exploring the dynamic between object, subject and viewer.

The work comments on our capitalist society and consumerist behaviour, where the value of material things is inextricably linked to the value we place upon women's bodies - a cultural conditioning ready for subversion, re-imagining and revolutionising.

In a social climate that is losing touch with the natural world, to centralise the female body and our relationship to it - the basis for all our relationships - is timely and necessary.

If how we relate to the world is reflected through how we relate to ourselves, can we transform all our relationships, to objects, to nature and to others, by transforming our relationship with our own bodies?’
