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

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.
One year before #metoo, Clemence Vazard asked 12 women "What is your first memory of being harassed?". Their answers and portraits are fragmented and gathered in an immersive sound and visual installation.
This video and series of portraits denounce the beauty standards as one of the many psychological and physical violences against women.
Clémence Vazard has collected testimonies from young women who share their experiences with social media and transformed them into Siri female voices. This project has been released during the Visual Diet Campaign at M&C Saatchi Headquarters.
