The work 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 treatment is applied in a manner that levels the entire front of the head into a smooth mass, attening and leveling the surface until all individual features become unrecognizable and the face merges with the background. The work showing an auto-agressive act of intervention and alteration is a result of a stay in Gangnam, Seoul, where cosmetic surgery advertisement and urban development politics pursue a strangely similar form of surface estetics.
