Training Wear

(2020) 

Vídeo-performance and clothing of performance

This work exposes and represents training nails in a wearable element, portrayed by an evening dress - that represents lust and opulence - and by the ritual and process of the first creations of nail extension in the so called “training phase” made by the artist.

 

It is possible to realize inversion and displacement of senses, when we put these two elements together: The formality and ostentation of the evening dress and the place that training manicure is put in the common imaginary, as something that should be hidden and occulted until the final outcome of the nails is impeccable.
