"We did not lie to you, we told you about monsters. They made you laugh and tremble.... Yet if chance had wanted it, you could have been one of them." Freaks, T. Browning,1932.
These jewels play on the repulsive / seductive side, and they are both objects of anxiety and fascination. They propose that you metamorphose and reveal your monstrous side; instead of inventing a more beautiful body, more "Instagramable“, via surgery or cosmetics, as our consumer society proposes; but here the body is rather freed from its own anatomy, has broken with the dominant norm. Even if we can call these objects simulacra, they are still a break with the idea of good taste and elegance.
