2023, Video with sound. 04.15min

This film explores the transformative power of adornment, using the act of applying layers of makeup as a metaphorical journey.

A woman, meticulously builds layers of vibrant eye shadow, glitter, and multiple pairs of fake eyelashes onto her eye.
The visual richness and complexity of the makeup become symbolic of the various layers we accumulate in our lives. Each stroke of colour and each adhesive lash represents experiences, expectations, and societal pressures. The accumulating weight serves as a metaphor for the burdens we carry, both self-imposed and those placed upon us by external forces.

Focusing on the eye, a window to the soul, reinforces the idea that this process is not just about external appearance but delves into the internal struggles and complexities of the human psyche. At the end the woman finds herself unable to open her heavily adorned eye. The closed eye becomes a powerful visual metaphor for a person losing sight of their true self.

The mask part 1; The world´s smallest 

2019, three screen synchronised video projection with sound, 21.35min

Installation shot Oseana kunst og kultursenter  2019 “The mask”

The mask – a new face put on top of the old one – enables its carrier to free itself from itself and to become someone else. Thus the mask can liberate the person behind the mask, but at the same time deceive its surroundings and represent the fake, the supressed, and the unearnest. 

THE MASK Part 1: The worlds’ smallest mask is the first part in a series of documentary based video installations. In Bangkok characters get ready for the world clown convention in 2017, and in England, Arthur, also known as Arthuro and Clown Vercoe, gradually layers his clown face and shares his experiences with the camera. We witness a slow metamorphosis as Arthur and his colleagues gradually fade and the clowns take over.

Backbender focuses on close-ups of the fascinating but awkward and taut shapes in the body of a contortionist. The twisted legs, the spine bent backwards, joints perversely rotated to impossible degrees and the ever present rictus of a smile, the eyes alone revealing the immense effort in the performer.
Performer: Iryna Vaschenco
