Sois Belle et Tais toi (Be pretty and shut up)

 

In this performance, the artist traces the outline of her body with lipstick on a mirror, reminiscent of the traces left on the crime scenes. Clémence Vazard engages the audience to participate until she removes the plaster covering her lips.
The pressure to our beauty standards is a psychological violence we suffer as women. By freeing herself from this aesthetic pressure, Clémence Vazard sends a message to other women that no beauty standard should interfere with the construction of their identity.
