The Imploding Portraits InevitableSeries, which began with Shiny, Shiny… and False Colored Eyes, continues to take shape with Candy’s Camouflage. Projections of the feminine – or what one may take for it – are called up; deceptive stereotypes and fragile clichés are put to the endurance tests they deserve.

In „Candy’s Camouflage” the colourful frenzy of the previous pieces dissolves into the black and white of Film Noir. What remains are the tools of camouflage and deception, which provide the possibility to create a new self again and again.

An ode to weird– and messiness, to the controlled chaos of grimaces and erupting dance. Constant change, here, is the fundamental principle, mutation’s the game. Candy’s Camouflage is dreamlike, surreal, ambiguous. The magical mystery tour leads into the inner workings of the gender-circuitry, with a final collapse into futuristic abstraction. And those who are seen will ultimately turn into lookers, step back from the scenery, cross-fade with the audience.
