Sensorial Self-Portraits
Project info

My sensorial self-portraits are personal fictions. The impulse emerged from a sensory mask made by a Brazilian plastic artist Lygia Clark. With this impulse came the desire to try to manipulate and to wear an object of sensations and self-analysis, proposed by the artist.

So I started to create my own masks, not only inspired by the poetics used by Lygia, but also by different artists throughout the history of art, which in some way mark my memory. Inspired by this proposal, I have created self-transformations instead of using the others body, as Clark and Oiticica did. I offer my own body and mind to similar experiences as the ones Lygia worked in the “file memory” of her patients: their fears and weaknesses, through the sensory.
