Ryoko Suzuki. Sweat 6 from the series ANIKORA, 2002.

Description:
The ANIKORA series is a collage of facial images placed on top of stereoscopic bodies of “pretty girl characters” from the Japanese animation market.This concept was derived from "AIKORA” which combines the face of a celebrity with a woman’s body. This strange character in ANIKORA meant to reflect the image of the masculine sexual drive. The character brandishes masculine will power from within while marking use of the body, destined to be passive, to coerce the audience into having an impression of inconvenience.
