‘Cause you can call yourself authentic when you get as close as you can to the idea that you have of yourself’ (P.A.)
Maquillage investigates the sociological concept of the ‘social construction of the body’. Having a body is not just a merely biological matter but also a social and economic one.
You can create your body as you prefer or according to what others want you to. There’s nothing good or bad in it. It’s just like that for everybody, even for the ones who pretend to be outside of that system.
