Makeover Culture Disfigured refers to the distorted nature of identity and body image found in mediated images as well as Alisa Henriquez’s approach to them. In her new body of constructed assemblages, Henriquez combines digitized and distorted scans from popular and glamour culture with supercharged materials like glitter, faux fur, synthetic hair, and resin.
