    "Make Me Up" (2014)

    Film stills, film and object created during performance (face printed onto pillowcase)

    Exhibited for BA Fine Art intrim, Chelsea College of Art, London.

    I was looking into the role make up has - in terms of masking, altering identity and being very gender specific. For a performance piece in front of a camera, I placed a pillow case over my head and applied my make up like normal, this left the imprint on the pillowcase - almost a inverted image of my face. From this I ended up with the film of me making the image and with the final product also.
