About MeRubi Hookx is a collaboration. Rubi began as an experiment in the modelling world, but it soon became apparent that our ethos was at odds with aspects of this world; primarily the objectificaiton of the female body, which is in essence what the modelling world is about (selling an image of a so-called beauty). Numerous offers were presented to us from photographers who were interested in creating "art nude" shots, which prompted us to not only question their motivation but also the ways in which society seems to accept that the female body is there to be voyeuristically examined and determined. Therefore we wish to challenge this.
Our inspiration comes from a variety of sources, but primarily from the fine art world (Sarah Lucas, the Chapman Brothers, Pipilotti Rist etc), cinema (David Lynch, Gaspar Noe, Robert Morgan, Lars Von Trier etc), and photography (John Santerineross, Mapplethorpe, Joel-Peter Witkin etc). These individuals are just a small example of those that inspire.
In the future, we look forward to working with individuals who wish to question constructs of gender and beauty, who consider the mise en scene of an image, and who wish to create art rather than just a portrait image. Please contact us if you feel that you are interested.
