Excerpts from Coquetta / sound performance, 13.12.2018, Casa Artelor, Timișoara
Coquetta flourishes in a sardonic cosmetic beautifying ritual, amongst dandizectric’ discords and modified ‘pink-taxed’ items. The desired flawless looks unveil their poisonous essence; lead and arsenic being one of the all-time favourite chemical compounds used in makeup. The step-by-step body preparation occurs as a rhythmical daily toilette routine. Hair combing, moisturizing, scrubbing, eyelash curling, eye-shadowing, powder-puffing, lipstick application, and other sounding manoeuvres get chiselled by the control voltages of the tapping electric-stilettos. The buzzes of the body appearance altering devices blend inside of the to-go wig boxes and other flirtatious velvet gizmos soldered merely from trash finds.
