Zaepandemia performance

textile, performance, photo series - 2014 - 2015

The plush head of a fictional character, the rare animal named Zaepanda, who suddenly appears among humans.  Wearing the mask allows knowing what it is like to be different and disabled, look weird and get a lot of close attention from random spectators. The mask has no any holes for eyes and mouth, so the performer is isolated from the outer world is blind and almost deaf-mute.
