Exploring our obsession with beauty and fear of aging

Gorgeous show, 2010+. A multi-creative piece which delves into a woman’s attitude to and perception of herself. A story of skin, accessories and our capricious relationship with the mirror, this is a journey of our affair with the mirror; from discovery and emerging self-awareness, through to vanity and obsession. Mirror, glove, hat and stiletto then transform into creatures of mischief and wonder.
