Karin Crona: Duckface

Karin Crona: Duckface

This is the meeting between a series of nude self portraits and a box of women’s magazines found at a garage sale. Published in 1967-69, their pages show the kind of society I was born into – naked as a baby girl, with no idea where I had landed. I have used these clips to play with female stereotypes in a subtle way, but also to cover up one of today’s biggest taboos: nudity, aka female nipples and pubic hair, a no-go zone on social media.

Karin Crona – born and raised in Sweden, received MFA in graphic design and illustration from the University College of Arts, Crafts, and Design in Stockholm. In 1999, moved to Paris to work as an art director and a graphic designer.
