København V, 1778 Danmark
6. June 2019 - 17. June 2019
This exhibition is part of a larger showcasing in Carlsberg Byens Galleri og Kunstsalon. There are in total 6 exhibition and one filmfestival. You can find links to the other exhibitions at the end of this paragraph.
In the exhibition “Trans-Formation – Real is how you feel ” artist Chris Calmer is investigating the glamorization of cosmetic operations while questioning certain beauty ideals and who dictates these ideals. – Do you become more happy by changing your appearance permanently? The cosmetic procedure is essential, as it is the only opportunity for some transgender women to achieve their true selves. The stigmatization is enormous concerning transgender cosmetic procedures. The discrimination of people getting procedures is thriving in anonymous forums on the internet, where many are equating the procedures with insecurity, lack of self worth, and narcissism.
This exhibition is highlighting body ideals and seeks through visual imagery to start a debate about acceptance and individuality. What is individual beauty? A reconstruction of these physical features or a reconstruction in the brain?
