Phalanx, 1998
Makeup and dirt on fabric, taffeta on paper, book pages on rice paper, and plumb bobs.
Dimensions variable



Twelve men applied makeup and removed it onto cloths for me. Their facial imprints comprise the twelve members of Phalanx. Also pictured, One Remove, a video of the makeup removing process performed by both men and women. In future instalaltions, Phalanx would hang away from the wall, and the video would be projected onto its back.
