Lecture 5: The Discreet artist - Paraskevi frasiola

The discreet artist

The discreet artist is a video performance that adopts camouflage methods and strategies for different events, social circumstances or surroundings in an effort to pass unnoticed and invisible and simultaneously fail to do so. It is a practice that although it holds the power of concealment is letting me exposed. Although the camouflage techniques are carefully thought of, they are designed in a manner that is failing to protect from the viewers gaze. This series proves that you can be in the centre of attention and still be elusive and concealed, avoiding direct eye contact, or make your crippling social anxiety vanish while still being in the spotlight.
