Beftival portrait of Julia Leis Lap - Collaborator of Beftival Caroline Aravicius

Julia Leis Lap is a multidisciplinary designer with Spanish and Dutch roots, currently based in Rotterdam. With a background in illustration, she integrates absurdism in her practice to create eye-catching wonderous works.

For Beftival, along with Jinnie Ahn, she created a video that shows the oversexualisation of the animal body as a way to sell it as food. This causes a new level of degradation and objectification of the animal/women’s body as it is sold as something men are entitled to eat and abuse.

Using the heteronormative perspective of the viewer and the viewed, they took inspiration from the over saturated, endless advertisements that are guilty of this oppressive topic.
