For this performance, Andreea David worked in a solitary space, where she was the sole observer and her own critical eye from the future, through the recording camera. The artist thus turned into the subject of her own aesthetic judgement and the object of her own narcissism. Aware of the look, the nude body immediately adjusts, performs postures stereotypically associated to femininity and its representations, fetish images that constantly require perfecting. In this performance, the nude self-composes in its own landscape, it its own staging, is hiding behind its own representation and conceals itself in the outer look.
