fed up of the media’s attention to and objectivation of women’s bodies, artist kitty von-sometime has realized an ongoing art film series in an effort to empower females of all descriptions. ‘the weird girls projectuses a music video format to expose the beauty in diversity, embracing the variety of shapes and sizes that make us who we are.

the short film entitled ‘#embraceyourself’ serves as the music video for the song ‘dim the lights’ by CREEP featuring sia. nude women encrusted in a thick layer of gold body glitter gracefully dance amongst a floor filled with wet volcanic sand, interacting with each other and the dusty substance. a backdrop of angled mirrors reflect and refract multiple images of the moving female models and their sparkling bodies, creating an ever-changing array of light and color.

 

‘the purpose of this piece is to promote a message to women to embrace their bodies‘, von-sometime says. ‘women celebrating as themselves and to truly love who they are.’
