Ceci n’est pas un masque is a performance about the mundane abstraction of reality. Fashion, fiction and function are the triumvirate articulating this experiment.
Ceci n’est pas un masque interrogates what facts and perceptions mean to each other when the collective is reduced to an unsettling intimacy.
How to feel when defining our impossible commitment to the future between the economic crisis, lockdowns, never-ending conspiracies and a cathartic vaccine?
Ceci n’est pas un masque is an ode to surrealism when data realism defines and designs a eugenic social body. No tongue, no teeth, no lips and the rest around, aesthetic convention aside, what is mankind about?
Ceci n’est pas un masque is an attempt of sensitivity through the automated empathy existing in the flatness of our screens.
The screen is our mask. The mask is hiding a secret. Be careful it could reveal itself through your eyes.
