Woman paints on her body – level 1

17-07-2023 15:00

A woman wants to paint something. Sadly, she has nothing to paint on. She paints an eye on her hand. It looks very strange. She takes a picture of her hand.

The woman becomes an artist. She paints on her body. Then she takes pictures of her body. She puts the pictures together and plays them quickly. The pictures create a film. Her films are strange and surreal.

The woman wants to send people a message: “Things are not what they seem.”

Difficult words: strange (not normal), surreal (like from a dream), seem (look like in the beginning).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What message does the woman want to send to people through her art?
