The human face
is an empty power,

a field of death ...
... after countless thousands of years
that the human face has spoken
and breathed
one still has the impression
that it hasn't even begun to
say what it is and what it knows.’
[Antonin Artaud] 

 

Faceless’ by Katarzyna Pastuszak poses a question about our ability to mould our identity and discover it through the body, movement, breath, voice, rhythm – in these elements, one can find one’s embodied individuality.
