The Valley Of Dolls from Fritz Schumann via Colossal and The Verge.

Ayano Tsukimi (64) is living in Nagoro, a village in eastern Iya on Shikoku, one of the four main islands of Japan. Not many people are still living there. For those who die or move away, Ayano Tsukimi is making lifesized dolls in their liking and puts them in places that were important to them. The dolls are scattered around the whole valley.

She is married, but her husband and daughter are living away from her in Osaka. She’s living alone with her 83 year old father in the house of her family.

CORPUS FEMINA Réalisé @ekwc - Costumes en céramiques - Charlotte Cornaton - The European Ceramic Work Centre.

"My project is a triptych about femininity. It consists of three ceramic costumes
designed for performances. I turn myself into an object, idealizing myself
the way men have idealized women countless times before, in order to reclaim
my body. The skin armour costume contests the objectification of women
in contemporary society. Feelings and emotions are represented through
an organ costume that shows the heart, lungs, liver, intestines etc. Finally,
a skeleton costume signifies both a carpe diem and a memento mori”. - Charlotte Cornaton.
