Low-tech plastic surgery Kelly - Bart Hess

Low-tech plastic surgery Kelly

Regular price €85

This is the outcome from a performance I did in collaboration with Lucy McRae for MU gallery during Dutch Design Week 2008. In this performance we asked the visitors to be our models. We set out to do the opposite of plastic surgery, to make people look more tired, older, uglier and create facial expressions that the normally wouldn't be possible to make.   


LucyandBart is a collaboration between artists Lucy McRae and Bart Hess. The ad hoc duo work close to the body, and their mode of operation is impulsive; they generate ambiguous images depicting our skin as an interface between our self and the world.
