installation and video

A game, which is supposedly created for children, is the core of the installation. The object is presented to the viewer as though it was created for a shop display. In a 3D animation the commercial video shows the viewer how to use the object. A massive torso becomes the base for applying pink plasticine. By utilizing pre-fabricated casts which produce "ugly" body parts, the plasticine is formed into features that are not in accordance with the "normal" standards of beauty. "Let's operate" is an invitation to change the prescribed "irregularities" back into standards. The goal of the game should be to teach children the importance of beauty in our society, in order to condition the child at an early age, to realize what the "prescribed" norms of beauty are.
