Yolanda Domínguez is a visual artist who uses film and photography to dissect contemporary culture. During her talk at Here 2016 she detailed her process, showcased the ludicrous tropes that inspire her critical projects and even called upon the audience in attendance to re-enact one of her most sardonic and irreverent works.
A highlight was her discussion of her ongoing Poses project, which began life in 2011 and lampoons the weird contorted poses of fashion models by showing us “normal” folk re-enacting them. Yolanda managed to get the whole auditorium to join in, and while the results are generally hilarious, it highlights the unrealistic view of our bodies the fashion industry promotes.
Here is a fast-paced annual creative symposium curated by It’s Nice That. To stay up to date with Here announcements you can sign up to our newsletter at here-london.com, follow us on Twitter or like our Facebook page.
