Celeste Prize 2013

This year I had an honour to be one of 120 semi-finalists in Celeste Prize 2013. My work Camouflage was selected from among 1717 works by the curator Barak Ami.

The work Camouflage is a recorded process of putting the make-up on. The stylistics of that situation is inspired by the beauty canon of 80’s and 90’s, and also by beauty sessions in fashion magazines. The woman’s beauty and her image is a metaphor of artistic creativity which could also be analyzed on two levels – first of all, we can interpret it on aesthetic level, and – second of all – on the level of the idea. There is always a risk that the woman can be a prisoner of her attractiveness. There is also a risk that the creation can be meaningless from the level of the idea. The canons of beauty are changeable and relative. The idea shall be invariable.
