This selection of short video works by Maughan includes sketches colored by her satirical wit and eclectic persona. In works such as Scar/Scarf, where she desperately tries to cover a scar with style, and The Way Underpants Really Are (1975), an unsexy reveal of her tattered, oversized underpants, Maughan explores the fear and shame that comes from failing to live up to the standards of a society obsessed with flawless beauty. Eerie works like Coffin From Toothpicks and Frozen & Buried Alive (1974-75) allude to a dark fascination with mortality, yet sustain humor via the absurdity of her characters' stories.
