Cecilia’s fascination with masks started when as a child she visited this great exhibition called ‘Masks - Other Worlds’ at a local culture institution in the small Swedish town. It was a wonderfully staged exhibition that took her on a journey through the vast mask collection of a Swedish eccentric anthropologist, accompanied with dramatic sound scapes and suggestive lighting. She says - humans have used them as tools to communicate and connect the everyday life with fantasy or another dimension for thousands of years. She further mentions that a mask is both an object and a vehicle for story telling - you can hang it on the wall or you can wear it and let it come to life. She is always thinking about ways to combine her two passions: masks and perfume. Her advice to aspiring young mask artists - tell visual stories with your masks. I also highly recommend collaborations with stylists, designers and photographers. Collaborations with the right creative people can result in beautiful imagery and projects that you could not have produced yourself.
