Nezaket Ekici, group exhibition, ‘Faceless’, De Markten, Brussels

March 2, 2015

The premise of this exhibition is to explore the common occurrence of images of hidden faces in the creative arts. I first became acquainted with the notion of hidden faces a decade ago, while still in the fashion industry. Through my collections I experimented with covering models’ faces in masks or hair, thus attempting to make a statement on the constant “overdose of beauty” and artificiality permeating contemporary society through the media. This suggested a possible return to masks as a solution for covering destabilized identities.
