Shaqe Kalaj. American Woman, 2006.

Description:
American Woman comments on the identities and definitions of women in America, while questioning our consciousness of these factors. It uses idealized body types found in popular culture as well as normal body types found in real life. Dolls and icons are used to define and show the evolution of our current definitions of beauty and its origins.
