MITRA FABIAN "SURFACE TREATMENT"

MY CREATIVE INSTINCT LIES IN CAPTURING MOMENTS OF
MORTALITY. THESE MOMENTS ARE TRANSFORMED INTO
VISCERAL EMBODIMENTS THAT REVEAL SOME SORT OF PHYSICAL
AND SPIRITUAL DISTRESS, MINGLING SCIENCE WITH
SENTIMENT. THEY RIDE A FINE LINE BETWEEN BEAUTIFUL
AND GROTESQUE, ASKING WHEN AND WHERE ONE BECOMES TH E
OTHER. I OFTEN USE MATERIAL AS METAPHOR, EXPRESSING
FRAGILITY THROUGH EPHEMERAL COMPONENTS AND HUMAN
EXPERIENCE THROUGH MUNDANE OBJECTS. MY PROCESS
BECOMES PERFORMANCE OF NURTURING AS I CREATE AND THEN
SIMULTANEOUSLY HEAL AND EMBELLISH THE OBJECT'
ABNORMALITIES, THE PERFORMANCE ALSO EXPRESSES THE
HUMAN URGE TO SLOW, CHANGE, AND MEASURE THESE
INEVITABLE TRANSACTIONS.

"DRESS ME UP IN YOUR LOVE, DRESS YOU UP IN MY LOVE"

-A SERIES OF LIFE-SIZE PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEOS DEALING
WITH IDENTITY AND TRANSFORMATION. USING MYSELF AS A
MEDIUM, I APPLY MAKEUP, CONSTRUCT COSTUMES, AND CREATE
SCENARIOS WHERE MY IDENTITY BECOMES A MASK, EXPLORING
MY IDEAS OF ARMOR AND ADORNMENT.
