The first gallery is focused on the “No,” a negation of body, identity, and memory featuring negative images in which she painted her whole body black to appear hyper-bright in the photos. In addition, this section features “Franciszka,” a black leather doll acting as a real-life, 3-D negative. The second section, the “Body,” features photographs of doll parts made out of pig-skin captured in the style of a “selfie.” The resulting images are strikingly human in appearance, calling to question the materiality of the body.
