My works, which deal with beauty and cosmetic products, draw upon the disequilibrium between the unattainable ideal of beauty created by the consuming society and people's body with flaws and ageing. The performances of applying the makeup tools embody my self-contradictory attitudes towards makeup – eager to get beautiful through makeup versus disgust at catering to the mainstream beauty criteria.
