“What we, in Norway, call a BEAUTY BOX, is what they, in other countries, call a Vanity Case or Vanity Box. Traditionally, it is a small suitcase, purse or box of beauty products and toiletries.”
In its latest exhibition project BEAUTY BOX, the artist group ARKIVET creates a room for interpretation of both the content and the container of the «beauty box». The expression beauty box can be used as a description of a beautiful box, a container for beautiful things, a box filled with makeup and beauty products or as a humorous term for vanity. A focus on appearance that has become more and more characterised by a staged self-presentation, often in connection with social media.
Is a beauty box a reflection of the beauty standards that is expected of us and how does this affect our self-image? ARKIVET will, for this project, collaborate with the video artist Tone Myskja and the author and curator Eivind Hofstad Evjemo.
ARKIVET (the Archive) is a collaboration between the Norwegian artists: Hilde Dramstad, Elsie-Ann
Hochlin, Camilla Luihn, Ella Heidi Sand and Putte H. Dal.
