WORKS 2004

Home-made Body Art

video-performance / video-installation







The project focuses on the meeting point between real life and the world presented in commercials and TV. In mass media cosmetics and methods of beautification are painless, pleasurable and un-timeconsuming. In reality, however, depilation, scrubbing and the application of some cosmetics is true body art, peformed by women every day at home. The process however, contrary to the activities of body artists, is happening without anybody’s knowledge, far from the eyes of spectators.
