The Perfect 10

In an image obsessed society, 'Emilia Paranioca - Perfect 10' attempts to resolve the discord between attempting to achieve an unattainable beauty ideal and the disconcerting idea perpetuated by the media and beauty industry that you can purchase this ideal in a jar.  In between this discord, the perception of what is 'attractive' or 'normal', unrealistic expectations and  obsession with youthfullness is performed by artist Emila Telese, whose installation deals with issues of self-perception and the tyranny of the beauty industry.
