"This life has been so difficult. I have been forced to sell my body to survive. I have experienced what the real Hell is. Feeling each day only fear and suffering, invited to see only the worst of each person I have met. I have faced disgust, hatred. I have never known what Love was in this world. At 25 years old, in a last episode of violence, I leave relieved of this body which has always been my curse, my tomb."

Candice Angelini is a self-taught artist whose work revolves around the threshold between life to death and the idea of memorialization. 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.
