We´ve all seen ballerina Barbie, rockstar Barbie, dr. Barbie, bridal Barbie etc. But we´ve never seen her quite like this before. Artist E.V. Day created an installation with mummified Barbie dolls as a representation of western culture and today´s obsession with preserving beauty through whatever means necessary.
If you´re interested in buying one of these babies, Grey area is selling them for $3500 each.
One of the assignments we got for our womenswear project was to create garments for a Barbie doll which gave me the idea to instead of making some elaborate garment I would let Barbie manifest my concept. To take something pretty and perfect and turn it dirty and messy in order to make it more interesting.
