Eid, Martine


Martine Eid is interested in visual factors that determine whether we find someone attractive. She wants to increase awareness of how these factors largely are a construct of our contemporary. The work is usually described as brutal but delicate and are meant to explore what portrayals are deemed worthy of an audience.

Pop culture has pulled a Pavlovs Dogs on us creating the idea that womens social value rests heavily on how sexually appealing she is. What in turn defines this is so constructed and categorised that it is absurd.

I am interested in the ‘momentary ugliness’ that is rarely captured, what we never see portrayed or glorified in the same way an over-posed bum would be.
