Brazilian Waxing, I-Phones and Jeff Koons
winter 2014 — fifth semester
Monitored by fear and isolation humans in today’s society wrap themselves in pleasing and perfected covers. They are domesticated (or domesticate themselves?) and spare their own complexity – vulnerable, violating, animal, tender, hard, edgy, soft. Artificiality and sleekness conceal every scar, rim, unevenness, disunity and asymmetry.
A protective cocoon, a repulsing mask and an illusionary picture at once.
The hand-sketched textile pattern is inspired by marble, which inheres two contrary qualities: On the one hand it is incredible smooth and luxurious, on the other hand it is rough and uneven in it‘s natural form. Inter-veined it is reminiscent of organic shapes and human capillaries.
