compliments after sexA series of body possitive images.
Compliments After Sex is a series of illustrations inspired by comments women have received after being intimate with someone. It aims to start conversations about body positivity and feminism. The still images and animations intertwine body parts and plants. On the one hand, this naturalises and thus normalises what these comments criticise (e.g. legs are hairy). On the other hand, it helps me to circumvent censoring practices – be it on Instagram or in galleries in India. This is an ongoing project, the comments will be illustrated and published on my Instagram page as and when inspiration strikes.
