Allie Pohl is a Los Angeles-based conceptual artist whose work explores the social and cultural constructions of contemporary Western society. Questioning the social constructs of perfection, Pohl created the “Ideal Woman” by digitally enhancing Barbie to fit Western society’s ideal female measurements of 36-24-36. This avatar symbolizes anti-perfection and is repeated throughout Pohl’s work in sculpture, video, ceramic, and installation. In an effort to continue the conversation outside of galleries and museums, Pohl has made her work more accessible through the “Ideal Woman” jewelry line and sticker packs.
