This triptych of collages is inspired by Julia Kristeva's notion of the abject: the innate horror felt when confronted with the 'other'.
By juxtaposing this with the glossy visual language of magazines, Soper strives to question the idealised, airbrushed representation of femininity, and its relation to the act of consuming.
