Beautox Me


UPCOMING EVENT: CSA Space, Vancouver  Sept. 6 - Oct. 7, 2012  Opening Reception: Thurs. Sept. 6, 6-9pm as part of SWARM


Beautox Me takes the faces of actors as the canvas for cosmetic / artistic intervention. In our era of High Definition media, actors who desire a younger appearance will be selectively recruited for botox facial injections. The actors will then be asked to pose for 'before' and 'after' video shoots while reciting highly emotive and affective scripts. The two channels will be shown side-by-side, to highlight the subtlly differentiated visual cues caused by the botox-induced muscle paralysis.
Beautox Me is part of a joint programming project between CSA Space and grunt gallery, Vancouver. Beautox Me will be installed at CSA Space, while Amelogenesis Imerfecta (How Deep is the Skin of Teeth) will be concurrently presented at grunt gallery.

This project is generously funded by The British Columbia Arts Council.
