On Thursday, 22 February,the exhibition of the Italian-Hungarian digital artist Kamilia Kard, entitled I’M a TOTAL BABE, was officially opened in Vitrina Deniska.
Kamilia Kard is an artist who deals with the search for female identity and examines self-presentation in the Internet age. In Deniska she has exhibited work from an extensive series of thematically matched digital prints and self-portraits of her own body, mostly drawn in pencil. In her work she completely reveals, and at the same time depersonalizes, her body and in this way she “controls” our viewpoint – she decides what part of her body we see and in which way we see it. After all, a woman herself is the one who decides what she wants to show to the world, as well as the way in which she is going to shape herself and furthermore take care of herself, and the extent to which she wants to mystify (remember commercials for the cosmetics industry, plastic surgery, healthy lifestyles and various clothing utilities).
