Yang-En Hume dismembers toy dolls, using them as anthropomorphic objects to question dominant gender paradigms in relation to beauty and femininity. The abject nature of her work resists hegemonic constructs of femininity in its refusal to depict the female body as self-contained. In examining her work, the viewer becomes both voyeur and object of the dolls’ gazes, subverting the conventional roles of artwork and audience.
