Jozef Mrva - Masks

“I consider these masks as experiments with identity, especially in the rituallistic way. The bearer is intended to accept his new archetypical identity and immerse oneself in his role. Animal masks may resemble skulls, remains or abominations. They bear shamanic, dionisian or satanic symbolism. The form, material and overall execution is primitive, harsh and expressionistic. They are made to inspire the inner forces of man and allow behavioral self-expression through identity alternation.”
