ALEXANDRA MAS VIEW BY...
"(...) Our relation continued and I was getting deeper into her protean work traveling towards figurative painting confines, lyrical abstraction, pictographs, art to wear. Alexandra Mas is constantly exploring new territories. (...)

“Artist fetishizing the human body (and fist of all, women’s body) with all the representations, Alexandra Mas definds herself as a beauty addict. But pay attention: this, in our corrupted world, ...”

"(...) Starting with the academic drawing, which she masters brilliantly, she traversed with bulimia a vast register of visual exploration which necessarily goes through photography and video to the most skilful digital manipulations of the image, performances or body art - work done with one's own body or that of others. The Aurore des Temps series (...) deliberately converts aestheticism into ecological activism. Beyond that, I like to see in the figures of actresses Aurore Tomé and Athule Mbekeni, strangely modified by their gold leaf garments, reminders of chryselephantine statues of antiquity. Like a new Midas king, the artist, who never ceases to seek an ideal of beauty, seems to turn everything she touches into gold, assuming the risks of reification.(...)

Vanitas Nostrum sculptural installation
presented first Place Vendome, by the Comité Vendome, featured in Book Haute couture,Italy, 2018-2019, in Le Parisien, July 2018, and on the web mag Artsixmic, selected by the Salon Des Artistes Francais 2022 and presented in the Grand Palais Ephemere in Paris, the sculpture is having now a residency in the Fortezza Orsini GR Sorano, Tuscany.
The cumulative sculpture is evolving and needs your objects. All old, new, used, empty things but full of stories, linked to your vanity. They can be perfume bottles, cosmetic products, jewellery, lace, dolls, miniature car and boats, bags, shoes, and more.

Open to anyone, men, women, non-binary, anyone who would like to participate!
What is it?
This sculpture is created from anything linked to "your" vanity, from mirrors to used beauty products. Abandoned jewelry, dolls, shoes, fake eyelashes, combs, wigs...
Vanitas Nostrum ( our vanity ) is an expression of what we tend to consume for our image confort. The superfluous, the superficial, worst, what society is teaching us about beauty … This sculpture is about everything that makes you feel comfortable when in society, but also more intimate, moments of your emancipation, féminin statements and needs. The installation will be accompanied by a cumulative sound piece that gives voice to this sculpture. In essence, your voices, all together making it universal.
How you can be involved:
by offering your vanity linked o objects and (not mandatory) a story of the object
contact the artist to receive directions
Send your audio recordings to VanitasNostrum@yahoo.com : a short audio recording on what your vanity products mean to you, it can be a word, a phrase or a long poetical monologue, a whisper or a scream, a lamentation or a strong affirmation, its yours! Make sure you register it in a quiet place. In Paris the sculpture is accompanied by: Mike Altrin, Valerie Fert, Kandi Spindler, Sarah Olson, Bernard Garo, Peter Hopkins, Hugues Lechanoine, Marco Tassini and the artist herself.
