Sex Sells is a series depicting common tropes used in mass media to fetishize the female body and identity. Women in media are constructed to be objects of male desire; their body language choreographed to make them appear passive, weak, youthful and overtly sexual. Through performative gestures, props, and absurdist humor, this series aims to call attention to these patterns in the representation of women and reclaim them as an act of rejection and female empowerment.
