Through my work “dazzling image - handle with care” I fulfilled my short-term dream of the gloss of beauty in a luxury-lifestyle atmosphere with the help of a photographer and a make-up artist.
In a panorama format ten models froze in their poses in a limited space. Their personal isolation produces an oppressive feeling in the onlooker. There is neither eye nor body contact between them. Each person is immersed in herself. They are completely preoccupied with representing themselves, in order to differentiate themselves from one another. The tense game of coquetry, the poses and impressions place the models in the banal reality. The onlooker only realises gradually that these are representations of one and the same woman. The duplication of the model and the piecemeal revelation of its attempted emulation in the serious game of “being a model” lead to irritation and demystify.
