Skin-Gardens. Eco-Transparent jewelry for politically cared skins About Credits Related

About the project


Skincare is a geopolitical practice. While caring for, cleaning, beautifying, and decorating our skin, we are contributing to the production of territorial transformations in distant locations: quarries, when we use mineral-based make-up; sheep farms, when applying collagen or elastin-based lotions; and laboratized animals, when using animal-tested products.

Cosmetics long ago ceased to be understood only as the concealment of discredited aspects of our body, such as age or illness.  The delicate exposure of the hidden geopolitical extensions of our body and the political discussions they prompt are the ultimate form of bodily decoration. SKIN GARDENS is a collection of geopolitical jewelry, meant to decorate the skin with images of the territorial transformations that cosmetics participate in.
