installation and video
A game, which is
supposedly created for children, is the core of
the installation. The object is presented to the
viewer as though it was created for a shop display.
In a 3D animation the commercial video shows the
viewer how to use the object. A massive torso becomes
the base for applying pink plasticine. By utilizing
pre-fabricated casts which produce "ugly"
body parts, the plasticine is formed into features
that are not in accordance with the "normal"
standards of beauty. "Let's operate" is
an invitation to change the prescribed "irregularities"
back into standards. The goal of the game should
be to teach children the importance of beauty in
our society, in order to condition the child at
an early age, to realize what the "prescribed"
norms of beauty are.
