Leveling (60kg black box)

single channel video, 1280 x 720, 20:37 mins, 2015

The video shows a person applying a cosmetic product to their face. With increasing amounts of the cosmetic treatment the facial cream covers the face more and more, showing the person's gradual transition into a grotesque creature. The work showing an act of intervention and alteration of oneself deals with subtle forms of physical and psychological auto- aggression. The work visualizes how the subject who was a main agent of activity gradually turns into an object rendering itself unable to perform vital actions.
