SKORO SAVRŠEN RAD / ALMOST PERFECT WORK

Izrađujem rukavicu za šminkanje od radničke rukavice pronađene na gradilištu te od pet karmina koje provlačim kroz prorezane vrhove prstiju rukavice. Mijenjam upotrebnu funkciju ovih predmeta postavljajući ih u simbiotički odnos.  Moje lice je radna površina na kojoj djelujem ispred ogledala što dokumentujem kao video snimak. Navlačim rukavicu na ruku i odvrćem karmine na vrhovima prstiju. Pokušavam da se nakarminim.

Ova svakodnevna radnja postaje nespretna i groteskna zbog radničke rukavice koja narušava ustaljeni ritam ženskog odnosa prema licu. Odvrtanje karmina popraćeno je zvukom bušilice dok zvuk brusilice prati prelaženje karmina po usnama - zvukovi sprava koje se koriste u svakodnevnom radu na gradilištu.

I make a make-up glove from a protective glove which I found earlier at a construction site and from five lipsticks, which I insert through the previously cut-off fingertips of the glove. I change the use of these objects by putting them in a symbiotic relation. My face is my work surface, on which I take action in front of a mirror, which I document as a video. I put on the make-up glove and push up the lipsticks protruding through the glove fingertips.

I try to put lipstick on my lips. The everyday action becomes awkward and grotesque because of the protective glove violating the typical rhythm  of women’s attitude towards their faces. The pushing up of the lipsticks is accompanied by the sound of a drill, while the sound of a grinder accompanies the crossing of the lipstick over my lips the sounds of devices used daily at construction sites.
