My thesis clarifies social and existential processes. It consists of two basal conceptual elements and their coexistence. It’s about an adjustment and absorption mechanism. The mask is a form of incarnation of the humane status, as Antonin Artaud first refers to, a body without organs. It’s the physical limit which abstracts the inner from the external environment. Across, the mirror, a dominant part of the sculptures’ installation, reveals characteristics of a whole , of an idol. A way to misinterpretate a seemingly endogenous situation. Their interaction. A conversation. The private, as a subject, an ego. The public, as an object, the external environment. A circuit. The multiplicity of idols, fake and not.
