In My Skin is a project that uses art-based research to investigate the effects that unrealistic standards of beauty have on women today. The exhibition shares the stories of women with diverse backgrounds and questions how a person's identity is informed by cultural and societal expectations towards their appearance and behaviour. Through a fabric and sound installation, the project unveils the complex ways we experience this issue and provides an intimate insight into the topic of body image and self-acceptance.
