IOANA VREME MOSER (Timișoara, Romania / Berlin)
Coquetta . Dormestic Beauty
Coquetta is a slow body preparation that occurs in eight steps of action: face-scrubbing, foundation, eyeshadow, curl the lashes, mascara, eyebrows, cheeks and lips. Powder-puffs, kabuki brushes, eyelash curlers, lipsticks and other beauty tools that enclose sensitive electronics are manoeuvred to apply cosmetic layers on the skin. The buzzes of the maquillage and other flirtatious gizmos made from trash mesh with tapping sounds of the pressure-resistive electro-shoes. The sensual phoney whirl occurs as a late night somnolent beautification ritual for a flawless look and a fresh day start.
