Feminine - Camouflage

People say, “Women never have enough dresses, purses, and shoes in their closets.” Does a woman really need to dress up and make up? Is appearance for a woman really important? I use the facial masks which are intended for taking care of women’s skin to make life size replicas of dresses, purses, and high heel shoes. I stiffen the facial masks and give them fragile, vulnerable, attractive figurative and skin-like references. The distorted facial expression also contains the metaphor of my anxiety about beauty. Through the photographs, I use my own body to have a conversation with my mask sculptures consciously or unconsciously. These dresses, purses and high heel shoes become a kind of camouflage.

By bringing sculpture, photography, and performance into my work, I transform my consciousness into a visible self-examination. I play the female and male roles to attack and oppose the stereotype from a male’s fetishism. I also question how these appearances endure and exist.
