Miss United Kingdom        (an archive) 

The Royal Festival Hall

London, UK - 2011







George Chakravarthi presents Miss United Kingdom (an archive) in The Clore Ballroom at the Royal Festival Hall as a dance floor posing piece that celebrates the retro brilliance and absurdity of beauty contests in the UK.

Three British beauty queens from different eras (1966, 1975 and 1994) in swimwear, eveningwear and ‘regional’ costume sashay new undertones to the once light viewing.
