Biography

Nora Neagoe (b.1997, Romania) is a visual artist whose practice revolves around the idea of beauty in social media. Bringing discomfort to the viewer, the figures look innocent but also wanting the attention of the viewer, through warm and pastel colors, that represent the purity of the bodies. In my work, I focus on high heels and the legs of women, as they are seen as the etiquette of femininity. The bodies look distorted, such as the filters on social media change the bodies, showing a different version of the person. The women are shown as objects of observation but also them looking at each other and at the viewer, creating a sense of discomfort. I take inspiration from the fashion world and brands like Mugler and Balmain, with elements of futurism and sci-fi. Nora lives and works in London, UK.
