BODY EXPIRED 2 points at our culturally blind acceptance of beauty. It deals with the imperfect versus our dreams of body perfection, with the fear of decaying and aging, the uglyness, lonelyness and anonymity that surround disgraceful bodies. We are forced to rethink how we regard our body and to consider the way in wich the media depict women in particular, as well as the body in general.
