From the series «Performing White Skin» WIKIWIKI “trompe-l’œil de la vérité” Starring a collection of wood carved masks resembling hegemonic power figures; «Robert Petit» (Independent journalist) and «Guillaume Cohen» (Academic, intellectual and Poet) perform a satiric breaking news broadcast. The polychrome masks, inspired by Mexican carnivals and the art some West African tribes —specifically, those ritual objects incorporated into the European collecting circuit— get to life through some characters who enact an ironic-twisted news report, addressing contemporary art lingo, politics of repression and frenzy dance.
