Cosmocoka: Barrebiesco Primitivism

Barrebiesco Primitivism

This naked body walks through the streets, wearing a primitive mask and carrying a mirror as it approaches the audience. It laughs and walks seductively towards men, revealing the vulnerability and nervousness of the body, the spectrality of this beautiful image, and the monstrosity of vulnerability.
