Alienating the elements in fashion and beauty magazines...

From the Artist:
Enrico Nagel’s collages depict headless figures and perfectly shaped bodies. From their innermost part, something new seems to cut its way through, as if it wanted to conquer the beautiful body. This interplay appears as a silent fight in which the creatures become vulnerable. In his work, the Berlin-based artist tells stories of beauty and fragility. He finds the ingredients of his collages in fashion and beauty magazines and mixes up fashion, jewelry, design, humans, and animals. He reduces and alienates all these elements until they take on a new meaning.

The following gallery is from his Au Paradis des Couleurs series.
