Damselfrau Creates Masks

Damselfrau Creates Masks

Damselfrau is Maghild Kennedy, an artist from Norway. To us, at Mimi Berlin, she is most known for the masks she creates. The masks are mostly created with found materials and sewn by Damselfrau’s hands. If you need to label this work you could say it’s textile art.  Her work was on exhibit at Moba 13 in Arnheim and at various venues in Londen, where Damselfrau works and lives. In her exhibitions the masks are often shown by itself, they become faces that way.

Gustav Brostrom’s Beauty Multi Masks on Instagram

Gustav Brostrom’s Beauty Multi Masks on Instagram

The instagram feed of Gustav Brostrom from Stockholm, Sweden, is filled with selfies made of his face covered in different beauty masks at the same time. Gustav mixes facial masks, patches, foams and what have you not, to create lovely images of himself. (yes we know they are called selfies)

Multimasking was the newest rage in 2015, a beauty trend we, at Mimi Berlin, completely missed out on. Basically it’s targeted skincare. By putting on multiple facial masks, or layer them simultaneously on the skin, you can treat different skin concerns at one time. Gustav Brostrom takes multimasking to the next level. Fun!

The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin

A tale written by Beatix Potter and ‘told’ by the Royal Ballet. Watching this clip is an easy-going, friendly way to start the day (in our opinion) Have a nice one! xoxo Mimi

“Tales of Beatrix Potter was created in 1971 for a film, bringing alive with astonishing accuracy the famous images and stories of Beatrix Potter. The dancers of The Royal Ballet are dressed and masked to look just as we know them from the illustrations.” (via and see more youtube Royal Opera House))
