Five freeze frames were selected from Marina Abramovic’s Art must be beautiful, artist must be beautiful (1975) as ‘ideal’ images of ‘artist beauty’. Using real-time video capture and instant playback, Eugenia performed to/at her own image, repeating actions according to the following manifesto:
I am seated. I brush my hair for beautiful art / artist beauty. I stare at you. I try and get it right. This repeats until one of us turns our back.
