ALEXANDRA MARZELLA

Having begun research for my essay, I am looking into net-art artist Amalia Ulman and her use of Instagram as a medium. Working in a similar way, is Alexandra Marzella. Marzella’s work comments on our current online, image-obsessed culture. Through nude self-portraits, Marzella expresses her desire to move away from hypersexualized imagery and the over-sexualisation of the female body. She confronts gender norms and stereotyped expectations of what a woman is/should be. Interested in the conflict between her exposing imagery, and her use of online medium, I would like to discuss this further in the cotext of my final essay. How does her art medium alter our observation of the female body?
