Where does your imagination take you when you fall in love with a painting? (un)Covered explores this question with one of the most iconic paintings in the world, The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli. From this painting emerges a strange and unique world where we explore the human form: its beauty and its strangeness. We ask, is beauty ever really attainable or is it just an illusion? We go inside the artwork and ourselves with a quest to learn how the Venus is in all of us.
