The mask, as a reflection of the face in the mirror of imagination, holds a privileged position in the history of human expression. From the depths of time to the present day, from the most primitive cultures to the most sophisticated, a companion in the noisy feasts of life and the immobility of death, made with materials that range from the insignificance of mud to the vanity of pure gold, serving both dark needs, such as deception, and bringing people in contact with luminous ancestral spirits, hidden inner truths or divinities, the mask is a field in which the creative power of humanity proved itself to be inexhaustible by interpreting, through matter, what was imagined of the face.
Us too, in our workshop encounters, diving into this material, from the African masks to the clown mask, from the traditional masks of the eastern theaters to the improvised carnival masks and the contemporary art and fashion, we will play with both predictable and unpredictable materials, being given the freedom to breathe life into the faces of our imagination.
Start collecting what you would normally throw away and join us to offer them a second chance, with a new, unexpected, kind of usage.
