Hi, what are you looking for?

Art

NSFW: Sex, Menstruation, Defecation, Self harm
The Art of Bruna Prazeres

The other day we received a message from an artist named Bruna Prazeres whose work pushes the boundaries of pain, sex and beauty. All of her pictures will have you asking yourself, where does her art fit into my reality? She documents our secrets, the bodies we pretend don’t exist, the thoughts we erase from our public persons. These are visceral photos, images that dig into the pit of your stomach and eat away at your lies. Prazeres doesn’t seem to shy away from any taboo; her photos feature sex, menstruation, defecation, self harm and scarred skin – who we are when our doors are closed and our clothes are off. They are not for those who are easily grossed out, and I admire her ability to tackle these subjects with integrity.

    I hardly call that pushing the boundaries of pain, sex, or beauty. I mean, the photos are well done, and I understand the concept; but if you’re looking for shock value, I hardly think this is it. Nice work though. I think we all can relate to these, in some way or another.

    Some of the pictures were good as “art photos” but not that shocking. It´s all in the eye of the beholder, I guess.

    This isn’t art. It’s fucking degeneracy.

      I have a degree in fine arts and a master’s degree in fine arts, you may not like, but this is art. You can read my thesis of 180 pages that theorizes the convergence of abject and obscenity in the visual representation. So you will be more informed about abject art. 🙂

      saying “this isnt art” is the easiest way to let us know that you have no grasp on what art is

      you are pretty close minded.
