Tanning Shop

Tanning Shop is a piece of performance art that interrogates Western standards of beauty, representation whiteness and health.

By using the body as a site for resistance, the artist Celeste performs in Tanning shops and beauty salons. By performing a ritual that involves the use of sun beds and music, Celeste interrupts and subverts Eurocentric beauty ideals.
