‘By the Face’ is a collaborative piece betweeen myself and Alexia as part of the Miles Km project in Madrid in April. Alexia and I installed a canvas in which audience members pressed their faced up against, and then got their face painted. what remained is a vague texture of the contours of the individual. We wanted the painting to relate to a photograph or a scan of a moment, visually the piece was compelling and haunting although the participation was playful and fun. It was brilliant using painting in a live participatory format, and me and Alexia hope to install ‘By the Face’ in other countries as part of a series.
