remnant cosmetic facial peel from the artist's body, mixed media
installation configurations and dimensions variable
The Trousseau series uses remnant material that results from a peel-off facial mask. This over-the-counter beauty product picks up and retains the detailed impression of texture and hairs on skin. To collect the material, I essentially cover my whole body with the gel mask. Once dried, i peel it off in one large "hide" to be used as "fabric" for the construction of the sculptures for the Trousseau series.
