Animation Perfectly Comments On Our Warped Standards of the Female Body

Supervenus 1

It takes great lengths for a woman to meet today’s unattainable beauty standards.

You need to work. Shave it, brush it, lift it, tuck it. Some things need to be smaller, the others — bigger. And all for that glorious moment when somebody says you are beautiful, feminine, divine. But is it worth it?

French filmmaker Frederic Doazan of explores that in his short animation that displays how absurd the Western beauty standards opted towards women really are. Titled ‘Supervenus’, his video shows what jarring body modifications women agree upon, just to match the disturbingly unnatural idea of femininity.

We are pleased to announce that Frederic has chosen artFido to feature his video, and he has also provided us with a further video documenting “the making of” process. Scroll down to watch the videos below. Thanks Frederic!
