PEELING BACK – Episode 1, BEAUTY GLOW TANNING STUDIO SERIES
Nina Santes, 2023
Beauty Glow Tanning Studio is not a title, but the name of a place. It is ﬁrst of all the name of a beauty salon. It would also be the name of a place- body, which breathes, makes its voice(s) heard. A cave, a hole, a belly, a living organism that one would have penetrated, and with which one would enter into a dialogue.
Beauty Glow Tanning Studio is a double, liminal place, in which tensions and paradoxes are exercised. A place in which beauty and the irregardable coexist.
Beauty Glow Tanning Studio is a modular scenographic device designed for the long term, which will host a series in three episodes: a solo, an installation, and a collective piece, from 2023 to 2025.
Beauty Glow Tanning Studio is a new cycle of creations that focuses primarily on the notion of sacriﬁce and its implications in our relationship to the body and to the living. This cycle is articulated as a long-term investigation, and proceeds by intuitive analogies, seeking to strip away, to peel layer after layer, the notion of sacriﬁce.
Sacriﬁce as a vehicle for rape, extractivist logics and modern violence. Sacriﬁce as a gift, as a necessary death, guaranteeing the renewal of the world.
Between satire and ritual of reparation, the ﬁrst episode of this new cycle will be a solo named Peeling Back.
