video projection on water, 2013
Ablution is occurring in various religious systems, real or symbolic ritual washing of the body or parts of it, cult objects or sacrificial tools. At the beginning it was one of the ways to remove ritual uncleanness, which in my installation does not refer to religion, but is a negation of the idealized appearance shown by face makeup. The video presents the water face immersion and removing makeup without using your hands. Face makeup is very intense and does not cleanse. The source of washing face causes only blur, dirt and physical pain. The installation consists of a recording (with a sound of breath) of the ablution process in water and then a multimedia projection on real water poured into a bowl, which is a symbol of the ritual of cleansing the face.
