Through an installation featuring uncomfortable and tactile textiles, Suzanne Corcessin argues that plucking practices should not be seen as a neutral act but rather as a political one. Corcessin’s purpose in creating skins with latex, silicone, and feathers is to confront the public with a complex mix of contradictory emotions to open up new perspectives on the hair removal debate. Imaginary products confront viewers with notions of aesthetics.
The young artist and designer Suzanne Corcessin lives and works in Bruxelles. Recent Alumni of the Design Academy of Eindhoven in Contextual Design, she creates and develops textiles that embrace poetry, aesthetics and perturbation.
