Time Out says

If this series of small masks reminds you of comedy/tragedy masks from Ancient Greek theater, that’s totally intentional. As the artist’s puts it, her objects examine “themes of artifice and authenticity in the politics of modern performance and persuasion.” More interesting, perhaps is how they were made: They started as clay slabs laid on the artist’s face, which were then pushed and twisted to both follow and exaggerate her facial features before being fired with a black glaze. The result look oddly like burnt remains, suggesting, perhaps, that the final expression of authenticity is your own mortality.
