Cléophée is a unique piece created by french mask maker Candice Angelini. It is crafted of waxed paper hand colored with inks. Cleophée wears an antique flower tiara and a tulle collar, both made in the 19th Century. She is associated with Colombina, the iconic character from Commedia dell’Arte and romantic partner of Pierrot. She is a soothing and benevolent spirit.

Candice Angelini is a self-taught artist whose work revolves around the threshold between life to death and the idea of memorialisation. Her fascination for 19th Century France makes her believe she’s feel stuck in time, between her own era and the past. A believer in past lives, Angelini creates masks that evokes her relationship to former lives and identities contained within her. Each of her sculptures, made of paper, antique materials and often real human hair or teeth are unique, and channels a bit of the past souls it once was attached to.
