Nail Polish Tutorials (2010-2012)

In the series of videos “Nail Polish Tutorials” the artist teaches how to paint the nails based on works by renowned artists. Bringing together elitist taste and popular taste. The possibility of teaching high art through a nail polish video-tutorial maintains a close relationship with the utopian idea of the “massification of culture”. The videos are inspired by the thousands of tutorials on YouTube, a website that has opened the spectrum towards a more private image with minimal production costs. One of the most interesting trends on YouTube are the video-tutorials, where anyone can teach what they want and know. The videos show a very specific YouTube aesthetic, but without sound. Seeking the visitor’s aesthetic contemplation and changing, in some way, the tradition of isolation from Internet users.
