My work consists of paintings, sculptural installations, masks and performances in which the theatricality of life plays an important role. A recurring object and theme in my work is ‘the mask’, which I use to explore the complexity of human identity. A mask is a tool to become ‘the other’, within a ritual, performance or a painting. I play with this in different ways.
For This Art Fair I present ‘The Lazy Horse Salon’, an art salon like solo presentation of my paintings, work on paper and masks. It contains a lot of new work that I made during a residency in Mexico City and a residency at the Van Gogh Huis in Zundert. In the middle of the salon you will find a life-size dead horse sculpture on which you can make yourself comfortable to enjoy my work.www.carmenschabracq.nl
