THE FACE INTERVIEWS ELSA ROUY ON HER LATEST SOLO EXHIBITION

TJ SIDHU, THE FACE , 24 Aug 2021

Elsa Rouy is challenging the idea of sex being sexy. 

 

The demon’ is a personified word to describe me,” says 21-year old artist Elsa Rouy of her new exhibition, A Demon in a Sundress. Since THE FACE spoke to her earlier this year, Rouy has opened her second solo show with five brand new paintings and sculptures, the works telling a narrative of a “‘monstrous’ woman penetrating, stretching, tearing, fingering; basically, consuming her current sexual and intimate counterpart.”
