Sensual and playful suggestions are a leitmotiv of work by the British artist Bert Gilbert (as the fun bottom blusher she made), which enriches with new creations, a series of surreal masks, commissioned by the brand Hendrick’s Gin. The artist told me about “these new objects, were inspired by her 3rd eye mask, that she made for a series of performances, art rituals she is producing with her alter ego, the scapegoat which is an art shaman”. Once Hendrick saw these, he commissioned a set of masks – created for their global ambassadors to wear as surreal disguises at brand events -, along with other items she is developing for them. It’s a nice gender blur, which talks about eroticism, irony and lightness, giving rise to a smashing showcase which depicts many body parts – tits, dicks, ears, hands, lips, eyes -, some of them are also erogenous zones, where it shines a must have mask, the dickhead mask, excellent idea to give oneself as a gift and give as a gift for celebrating your favorite dickhead( there are a lot of dickheads around the world – as it evidencedby the hilarious video by Bert “Dick Free London” -, but just only few ones deserve a dickhead mask for paying homage to their status, a form of art, of dickheads).

IRONIA & SENSUALITÀ, UNA SIMPATICA CONFUSIONE DI GENDER: LE MASCHERE SURREALI DI BERT GILBERT

Sensuali e ludiche suggestioni sono un leitmotiv dell’ opera dell’ artista inglese Bert Gilbert (come il divertente bottom blusher da lei realizzato) che si arricchisce di nuove creazioni, una serie di maschere surreali, commissionate dal brand Hendrick’s Gin. L’ artista mi ha detto che “questi nuovi oggetti si ispirano alla sua maschera da terzo occhio, da lei fatta per una serie di performance, rituali d’arte, che sta producendo con con il suo alter ego, il capro espiatorio che è uno sciamano dell’ arte”. Non appena Hendrick l’ ha vista, ha commissionato un set di maschere, – create per esser indossate dai suoi ambasciatori nel mondo come travestimenti durante gli eventi del marchio – unitamente ad altri oggetti che sono in corso d’ opera. È una simpatica confusione di gender che parla di erotismo, ironia e leggerezza, dando vita una formidabile rassegna che ritrae varie parti del corpo – tette, cazzi, orecchie, mani, bocche, orecchie, occhi -, alcune delle quali sono anche zone erogene, in cui splende una maschera da avere, la dickhead mask ( la maschera da testa di cazzo), eccellente idea da regalarsi e regalare per celebrare la propria testa di cazzo preferita (nel mondo esiste una moltitudine di teste di cazzo – come peraltro si evince dall’ ilare video di Bert “Dick Free London” -, ma soltanto pochi meritano una maschera da testa di cazzo per omaggiare il loro status, una forma d’ arte, di teste di cazzo).
