French Hyperbodies

August 23rd 2009

"Paris, printemps 2019: Oh Darling, you look gorgeous." Nowadays we are so used to Hollywood hyperbodies – a simulation of a body that never existed – it is good to see a different take on them for a change.

In the French interpretation – everyone knows the French have style – a hyperbody isn't some simple amplification (read: breast-implants) or restoration (read: botox) of a lost nature. Hyperbodies are high culture, an authentic fake. At least in the vision of the Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf who took these pictures as a part of his project 'Le Dernier Cri'.

We are now awaiting for this French style interpretation of a hyperbody to hit the Hollywood hills. Everyone knows that Americans secretly want to live in Paris and be French, so it shouldn't take long. Common guys, those boring breast implants are way out of style, your wife deserves something more creative.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
