Lips, an eye, an ear, an ankle and an arm. Using rectangles and cubes, these body fragments are laid out in a stiff linear pattern. This mixed media artwork comments on the fetishisation and objectification of the female body. The human body is a visible entity, yet it is intriguing how gender often becomes the focal point of attention. While the body encompasses all sexes, why is the female body objectifiedand sexualised? The constant societal fixation on women and the idealised notions of beauty affects everyone who carries them.

Nandita Basak, an artist from Kolkata, India, draws inspiration from delving into the socio-psychological aspects within visual cultures.
