As a reaction to the obsession of the perfect body ideals that we are constantly exposed to, especially through the media and in our social lives, Benjamin Nordsmark has built the Cleavage Closet to provoke and create some attention to this subject.
These days there is a high expectation for young girls, to have the perfect body. This could make some girls feel uncomfortable about their body and in some cases make them consider to undergo cosmetic alterations and surgery.
The Cleavage Closet is meant to appeal to the primitive side of sexual attraction by tricking people into believing that there is a naked woman inside of the closet. But as soon as they open the doors they realize that it is just silicone implants covered with latex attached to a piece of wood.
Benjamin Nordsmark, the artist, finds it important to appreciate the natural human form. Therefore, he created the closet to illustrate the difference between seeing implants inside and outside of the body, and to show how strange it might feel to experience two implants in a different context by exposing the artificial materials.
