My collages are sourced from a collection of vintage erotic magazines that I have been collecting. I developed the idea to revisit this imagery from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s with humour and a shift in viewpoint. My starting point is always the body. I spot kitsch poses that lend themselves to appropriation and then I build, deconstruct, and superimpose. For each assembly, I associate only two or three elements, always showing the white of the paper.
Nina Scceletton grew up on Reunion Island. She studied design and visual arts at the fine arts. She begins by developing an introspective photographic work around intimacy, which has slipped over time towards sassy, funny and provocative collages. Her work is strongly influenced by feminist themes and the place of women in art. By reappropriating the naked bodies of vintage magazines, she questions the evolution of female representations.
