Flabzilla

Still from Flabzilla, 2014

I see this work as a counterpoint to more assimilationist trends in fat activism, it’s art that rejects normativity and represents the delightful yukky value of fat bodies, especially queer and feminist bodies. What Flabzilla contributes to this work is a good measure of malevolence and a lot more shameless fat nudity than I’ve seen before.
