Hilla Shapira Artwork

“I see objects and bodies as agents of ideas. I use text, material, and the body as critical tools to raise questions about design norms, normativity and the manner in which we interact with objects. How do our object-related behaviors affect us? What does queer design look like? How do queered objects operate or should they operate at all?”

The images bring the essence of the place from an intentionally kitsch point of view, showing the unique personalities, almost like characters from a film. The aim was to play with the stereotypical images of this famous coastal town where everything is possible. As a photographer, I adopted the attitude of a camp spy.

Chyanne Kemp Illustrations

I often find myself a bit overstimulated by life as I know it. Visual art is how I slow down and process all of the people, places, and things that ebb and flow around me – and above all else, the feelings.
