ABOUT THE ARTIST'S WORKS
The work of Christelle Mas makes the hidden transformations experienced by the contemporary body visible. In her multifaceted work, the artist plays with what attracts us, providing pleasure with what frightens and disgusts us. The speed and violence with which the appearance of disgust occurs raises questions about what has come before such changes.
