The DEFECT series is a response to the disability of the body. Femininity is identified with delicacy, beauty, tenderness and pinkness. In reality, it’s strong. Flaws are the definition of femininity and the dilemmas associated with it. It is uncertainty and powerlessness expressed through decisive action. There is power in delicacy. This series is very personal. It is externalized and depicts the real story of the artist.
