Visage de Laque VDL_A01 is a sculptural work of art representing a mask, which can be worn. The work is made of hand woven synthetic hair and French lacquer (type Vernis Martin). The pigments inserted in the lacquer and the gilding constitute the decoration of this mask. Inspired by Maison Martin Margiela, the artist is interested in the idea of identity. The hair, and its symbolism, refers to a social, cultural and ethnic form. The hair identifies the wearer. Lacquer intervenes on the weaving of hair like a second skin, a form both ostentatious and camouflaging. In addition, lacquer helps to stiffen the hair tissue, to freeze it in space and time. The lateral cracks reinforce the idea of re-identification, of adding a second face, which is not ours. These are supported and highlighted by the crown of woven hair that surrounds the hairspray and creates the link with the hair hood. The traditional kanshitsu technique, which consists of giving shape to an object by stiffening a core of tissue through lacquer, is used with a new material: hair. Used as a textile fibre, the lacquer gives it shape, covers and hardens it while asserting its lightness and elegance. Faces act like a second skin, re-identifying the wearer, thanks to the intrinsic values that both materials generate. Evoking an atmosphere that is at the same time chimerical, sepulchral and erotic, the work interpolates the spectator with its unexpected shapes and materials, its organic and deep colours, its animal materials.
