EPITHESE
© HFF München/Felix Press

Is it possible to regain one’s natural appearance using an artificial object? Can a face be completed by the use of an inanimate object – an eye that does not blink or a nose that cannot be wrinkled? And will this object become a natural extension of a person’s body some day? A synthetic illusion that connects three women and explores the desire to be whole again.
