May & June

 

The video work 'May & June' was filmed in 2003 and completed in 2009, when the title and soundtrack were added. It focuses on the face of a young woman examining herself while putting on her make-up, as is her daily routine.


As the process unfolds, it becomes apparent that she is not content with her reflection, and the make-up starts to transform into more than just mere tools of adornment - It begins to externalize her inner turmoil and after a few tries the skin suddenly becomes an impromptu canvas, a fresh site for artistic experiment.
