Why do we cover our bodies but display our faces?
“Naked with Masks” is bold bodily communication, a parody of the self-censorship we all succumb to everyday.
Originally created in 2010 for ACT ART 8 (London) where it first premiered as "Naked Girls with Masks”, the project bizarrely flows between nudity-censorship, identity and fantasy.
