Since the very start, I knew I wanted to talk about the vulnerability and the hidden elements in life.Â I usedÂ the movie â€Little Shop of horrorsâ€ directed by Roger Corman as a strong reference throughout the site-specific project. The chaotic beauty of the shop (â€œKiaz Afro Cosmeticsâ€) amused me and it became the perfect scenario for my pieceÂ â€œLittle Wig Shopâ€.
Plastic masks made of pictures ofÂ magazines, newspapers, famous celebrities and myself; a 3D collage, a hybrid sculpture that explores the representation, the use of images and the concept of beauty. For me the sculptures are a mirror of society, a way to laugh at the images we consume. While digesting those imposed ideals we modify ourselves becoming unrecognisable.
