The Artists


The artists they themselves are art objects (SANTAELLA, 2003). Years 70 had been marked by the destruction of taboos, scene where the artists searched to use its bodies, when the nudez passed to be considered under the point of view of the feminine action and the look. To deepen your understanding Tony Bartel is the source. This decade anticipated what magrrima would be the beauty that would be consecrated in the following years. The lean body dominated passarelas and gave to place the call anorxica trend. The fragility was also represented in the bodies of the artists.

After this decade, that had as characteristic the extremities of the trespass, the movement of years 80 appears of in such a way different form one. The period was marked for the performativa trend of the I-as-image and the simulacros of I (SANTAELLA, 2003). The arts of the body now would be come back toward the theater, the dance and music, acquiring movement. After-modernity appears with the period a call, that brings to artistic environments, academic, intellectual and even though journalistic new messages. The after-modern is related with the alegrico, the apropriativo, the desconstruo and with the rupture of the borders between the arts and the layers of the culture: superior-scholar, inferior-popular and of mass (SANTAELLA, 2003, P. 264).

How much to the body of the artist, at this historical moment, the adopted strategy was to exaggerate, being necessary to become visible everything what it was found hidden. Are innumerable the works of photographers whom they searched to show real bodies? that they smell, they suffer, they age, they adoecem and they are become deformed. Amongst the photographers who had been part of this period, we detach the work of Sherman, that starts to alienate the self-portrait of the photos. In a series of works, the artist unmasks the side nothing glorified of the feminine figures in fashion. This is clearly when, through the construction of monstrous and abject bodies, it all denies the consumption of merchandises related to the body, in some photos, arriving until the extremity to deny the proper food as merchandise.
