The visual research focuses on the problem of body perception, where the emotional and sensual comprehension and living of bodily experience exposes the nature of fetishism in relation to the body. Fetish as a phenomenon is considered in the study through sculptures and installations created mainly by women artists, who in their works were among the first to use particularly sensual and tactile materials: kapron, silicone, fiberglass, wax, plastic, etc. The physiology of the material, which is so reminiscent of the human body, contributed to the formation of a "new sculpture" in contemporary art in the mid-20th century. The structure of the publication is divided into four chapters reflecting different aspects of the body. The works of the artists are grouped into the following sections: drama of the body, trauma of the body, body as object, body as sign.
