Series of 99 artistic face mask performable sculptures
Started as as a diary during confinement I used the time for reflection on aspects of past projects, setting myself the challenge of creating a series of 99 different and unique small wearable sculptures that condense the core aspects of my practice.
Performer: Clémentine Bedos
´The impossible kiss´ is a textile sculpture part of the series ´Covijo-99´. It is a ´mask tandem´, two masks connected by elastic ribbons with the ´social distancing´length. This piece is performed as a duo, the performers aim to get closer to each other keeping the elastic band stretched at all times. This piece puts the focus on our social connection, especially between female- sisterhood or even the bond between generations to our ancestors.
The piece is displayed as an installation, video and live performance.
