Taus Makhacheva: Sculptural Signature Facial

25 March 2020

13:00 – 20:00

£15, Book Online.

For a very special Wednesday Lates, we invite you to experience a unique 30 minute Sculptural Signature Facial as part of Taus Makhacheva's ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) Spa installation.

Conducted by a performer, each treatment will bring the participant into close proximity with the materiality of artworks through the ingredients in the cosmetic products used, and poses the question of what it means to be a restorer, or to be restored. Each one-to-one session includes a surface assessment, deep cleaning and plastifying masks and lasts approximately 30 minutes, during which a performer will recite stories about disappeared artworks throughout history.

Please bring a digital or print copy of your booking confirmation when attending the treatment and arrive at least 10 minutes before the start time.

Book your place here.

Please be aware that the Sculptural Signature Facial treatment cannot be performed on people who have active herpes, severe acne, diabetes, are pregnant or those who have recently undergone dental work.  A list of ingredients will be made available for those who have any allergy concerns. If you have any other questions or would like any more information, please email info@thetetley.org

The Tetley and Liverpool Biennial will not be held responsible for any reactions or issues that may arise for participants as a result of the treatment.

The spa products have been designed by Tigran Geletsyan from 22|11 Cosmetics exclusively for this project. The sessions are conducted by performers following a script by writer David McDermott. Hold Your Horses exhibition is presented in partnership with Liverpool Biennial and supported with National Lottery funding through Arts Council England's Strategic Touring fund. With thanks to narrative projects, London.
