Kathrine Ærtebjerg

was a part of “Face Painting for Adults

Face Painting for Adults: The established artists and painters Kathrine Ærtebjerg, Christian Schmidt Rasmussen and Anna Fro Vodder were invited to create paintings in adult faces. The paintings were temporary and could not be sold at the prices, these artists would normally get. The action was a humoristic commentary to the commercial art market and the question of “value”. How is the value of a performance assessed?
