Nahea An is an artist and designer based in New York, NY. She recently graduated with her BFA in Studio Art from New York University last year and exhibited at Andrew Edlin Gallery in New York. She now currently works as a textile designer. Her zine “Perversión” is a feminist project which compiles magazine advertisements to show how dominant the male perception is in our society. By removing the products being sold and presenting these bodies devoid of any marketing contexts, these women become dismembered, floating body parts. It is an exploration of how advertisements are objectifying women’s bodies as commodity and curves the direction of focus in consumerism. Item #18741
