Damselfrau: Veils

Veils is a photographic series of masks by artist Damselfrau, theatrically embodying the artist's intentions and inspiration whilst reflecting themes and identity projected upon them by the viewer.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Damselfrau looks at masks as autonomous works of art as well as action-objects. The mask to her is a place where different elements come together as situations reflecting this place-situation, more so than the mask as a theme or category of form - the mask is a place.

Her work is created through improved solving of factual problems. Using found objects and materials, as well as self-produced. From fine lace carried by nineteen century Norwegian author Camilla Collett, to hair from a two-hundred-year-old Japanese geisha hair piece – ignoring the conventional.

The work encourages characters of play - living in between the theatrical and the actual of the veil. The effect that the masks are subject to, are projections of others as well as our own. It is in this space that the objects exist and where new ones are created.
