If those who are undone by theory become theorists, what becomes of those who are undone by fashion?
Join Daniel Palillo at Design Museum Helsinki in a hands-on workshop for undoing fashion. An event for becoming makeshift makeup artists and objects of the eye. Live face making, with skin-safe ink or paper construction, will be captured by portrait specialist Sanna Lehto. Participants will receive a digital copy of their portait after the event.
In this workshop you will become a makeshift makeup artist. Pair up with a partner and prepare to get messy. Use paint, paper, or collage techniques to construct a new face for your model. Will you paint a landscape, an abstract, a pattern or a face of a face?
Next, it’s your turn to put on a mask. Find a different partner or trade places with your pair. Hold still! The new makeup artist will be giving you a fresh or freaky look for spring.
Before removing your new mask, be sure to make a face for the camera. Get your photo taken by Sanna Lehto in front of the backdrop. Make it count – the portraits will be sent to each participant online.
