Veronica Habib is a performance and installation artist whose interest lies in perceptions of the covered and exposed body. Through her video installations, she creates surrogate bodies engaging the audience, creating a presence and a sensory experience . The anthropomorphic qualities of clothing are utilized in her works as an external skin to explore themes of shame, body image and sexuality. Veronica challenges the concept of consent through the interconnecting relationship of the gaze, that is suggestive of touch and associated with violation, pleasure, destruction and play.
