    I was inspired in making this artwork to see Kim Kardashian during Met Gala 2019. The Met Gala, formerly known as the “Costume Institute Gala” and also known as the “Met Ball”, is an annual gala fundraising event for the Anna Wintour Costume Center at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in New York. In an Instagram post, Kim revealed that the dress took 7 months to make and included fittings in Montreal, Paris and LA - sparking a "magical inspiring connection" between her and the studio. She explained that the moment she and Kanye found out that the theme for the Met Gala was camp for 2019, they decided they had to go to Thierry Mugler who Kim called "the king of the camp." The dominant part of the camp is a game, an excess of form, a conscious orientation accentuated on aesthetics, mannerism and specially cultivated sensitivity. An aide to Thierry Mugler revealed that the designer decided to come out of retirement because he "immediately understood that Kim was the next beauty Venus." I represented her next to Venus of Willendorf one of the most famous Paleolithic Venus. They are linked to the historical epochs of humanity. We can say that Kim under his personality embodies the prototypes of Venuses. It is a link between the image and the proto-image. The handling of their depicted in shell found inspiration in Sandro Botticelli '' The Birth of Venus ''. They are the major pearls surrounded by the multiple small pearls on Kim's body, like the stars in the sky surround the pole star. The flowers of eternal spring sing the fragrant melodies. The inhabitants of the ocean are in astonishment. The foam glorifies birth.
