Physical uneasiness has by no means been so obvious. Barcelona-based performer Natalia Pereira’s photo sequence titled Dismorfobina exposes the illustration understanding of discomfort in one’s own skin. Amidst the demanding standard of beauty that is compulsory by the medium and the similar pressures unbreakable by civilization people are required to self-evaluate and middle on their flaw. Pereira’s series may come into view rather silly with the abnormally deformed facial expressions created through the strains of the elastic band wound tightly around each subject’s head, but it seems to touch on a more somber topic. Approximating the label of the piece suggest, the compilation of imagery draw concentration to dimorphic, or body dimorphic confusion (BDD), a cerebral illness rotating in the region of body image issues that results in despair and social phobia. Dismorfobina is at present part of a collection show titled Naturalezas Humanas, translate as Human Natures, at Arenas de Barcelona through September 15, 2012.
