Portelli’s practice centers on the relationship between fashion and identity and tend to criticize the ‘fashion victim attitude’. Her most recent work is a series of computer manipulated photographs, originally stohlen from fashion magazines in which she erases the clothes. Taking away the main vehicle of the otherwise exchangeable appearance of fashions models, she leaves behind anonymous and bodyless men and woman.
