A birthday card and a $25 cheque attempts to emphasise the nuances within cosmetic practises. Through film, the artist will explore the formalities of the utensils used, shedding a particular light upon objecthood. The silver objects throughout are used as a tool itself in order to separate the idea of commercialised warmth and the reality of these practices.
This project is inspired by the popularised series “Forensic Files” as the treatment of the body amongst domesticated spaces and objects reveals similarities to that of a salon. As this series reveals cold domestic spaces it bids me to question the crafted warmth one feels when entering a cosmetic practice, and how one can be manipulated into seeing and hearing particular things.
This show will provide a private glimpse of these procedures showing closely the exact nature of the operations. Within the series of video works are shorts of the artist receiving work done as well as cuts between edited stock images and videos in order to create an augmented experience for the viewers.
The exhibition will take place for one day only. Open to the public fro 10.00am - 5.00pm, Friday, 5 April with the official celebration at 7.00pm at Spectrum Project Space, Mount Lawley Campus, Edith Cowan University.
Date: Friday, 5 April 2019
Time: 7.00pm - 9.00pm
Venue: Spectrum Project Space, ECU Mount Lawley Campus, Building 3, Room 3.191
