INDENTIFY YOUR IDENTITY
The decoration is meant to show that there is an individual behind every balaclava. Every person is unique in their own way. On one hand, the masking leads to an identification with the group, a sense of togetherness, and on the other hand, the individual protects him/herself from attacks from outside. The attached „spikes“ show the harsh reality of political persecution, condemnation and restricted speech, but also the softer side of the person behind the mask, when looked at more closely. For the decoration, solid porcelain was creamed with the addition of water and filled into silicone bags. To achieve the desired result, nozzles were used which are actually used for baking. The creamy porcelain could then be shaped into the desired form with the help of the baking utensils.
