#EmbraceYourself by Kitty Von-Sometime
Kitty Von-Sometime is an Iceland-based filmmaker who creates powerful performance art videos celebrating women of diverse backgrounds, ages, and body types. Titled The Weird Girls Project, Kitty’s art pieces are visual experiments aimed at releasing the participants from inhibitions and insecurities by exploring fun and unconventional forms of identity.
Like many of The Weird Girls Project episodes, “#EmbraceYourself”, assumes a music video format as a platform to encourage body confidence in variety. The piece features women encrusted in thickly layered gold body glitter dancing amidst wet volcanic sand with a backdrop of angled mirrors. The purpose of this piece is to promote a message to women to embrace their bodies; women celebrating as themselves and to truly love who they are.
