"Lipstick ON/OFF"
Kotoe Ishii

Opening: Tuesday 7 April, 6-8pm
Dates: 7-24 April 2009

LIPSTICK ON/OFF depicts two faces of a woman endlessly putting red lipstick on and wiping it off. As she continuously draws and erases circles, it leaves smirch spreading over her face, looks like she got beaten up. While these acts appear simple and a bit childish, there are both sinister and sexual undertones to the performance. This challenges the notion of femininity, replacing them with an uncanny speculation on orifices and embodiment.
