The sexualisation of childhood is now a highly criticised and examined aspect of western culture. What was once a virtuous and sacred stage in identity formation has become contaminated with insecurity and consumption. In the production of ‘Femme Furor’ I have styled, directed and edited a parody of four recognisable aspects of female childhood. Each outfit consisting of both found and made artefacts, represents a stage of childhood that has been pornified on some level. While ‘Femme Furor ‘does not cure the sex-driven industries that pervades our daily routines, it does hope to highlight and critique sexualisation and make the viewer uncomfortable.
