Kat Toronto (aka Miss Meatface) “Peep Show”
Fleur du Mal
175 Mott Street NYC
December 11, 2019 – February 14, 2020

On Saturday February 8, The Untitled Space and Fleur Du Mal presented a special New York Fashion Week performance with artist Kat Toronto aka “Miss Meatface” in celebration of her exhibit “Peep Show” being shown at Fleur du Mal’s lower east side location. Indira Cesarine, founder of The Untitled Space and Jennifer Zuccarini of Fleur du Mal welcomed guests from the art and fashion scene to check out her exhibition of photography and ceramic photo plates. Attendees were served champagne cocktails and were able to meet and get their photos taken with the artist in her “Miss Meatface” latex attire.

Kat Toronto, who works in performance-based photography, often uses unsettling and surreal images to explore cultural ideals of feminine beauty and the objectification of women in a feminist society by toying with the push and pull of dominance and submission, as well as the acts of revealing and concealing. She was diagnosed with a rare form of cervical cancer in 2010 that eventually led to a full hysterectomy in 2013 that also plays a role in the kind of work she does. Kat uses the name “Miss Meatface” as an artistic and spiritual catalyst to delve into a complex set of questions about where she now fits into society as a woman.

Jennifer Zuccarini launched Fleur du Mal, a luxury lingerie boutique in 2012. The former Victoria’s Secret design director believes in the importance of presenting lingerie as a part of everyday wear. Through her designs, Zuccarini explores the notions of desire and playful perverseness, while maintaining style and comfort. The boutique also features a unique gallery space “Peep Show” where the artwork exhibited ties to the brand’s themes of femininity, power and attraction.

“Peep Show” currently displays a selection of Toronto’s photography including unique Polaroids, photographic prints on aluminum and photo printed ceramics. The exhibition is currently on view at the lower east side Fleur du Mal boutique and gallery space at 175 Mott Street in New York City until February 14, 2020.
