Gala Carlota Fernandez Montero
The performance "Beauty Treatment" by Gala Carlota Fernandez Montero was held from 8 to 18 September at "Meme Gallery" in Milan.
By appointment as to book any beauty treatment but it was in reality a special treatment, a portrait of the artist to bring oneself back to the center of one's private universe, the manner so dear to the Renaissance aristocracy but in contemporary clothes and accessible to all.
"More than a mere private and mannerist portrait, it is the pleasure of being portrayed that we must rediscover" - says Maria Angela Di Pierro, the gallery owner known as Meme - "portrayed not as an act of manner for its own sake but as a mental beauty treatment, psychological and aesthetic, an education in beauty and art. I am happy that a designer of the scope of Gala Carlota Fernandez, according to Elle Decor España best Designer of Spain 2020, has embraced my proposal and fell in love with my idea. She is an eclectic designer, an author not only with a great technical ability to design, illustrate and portray but with an equal emotional intelligence, a great empathic gift and a unique sensitivity capable of understanding how to make a person feel good in front of her by portraying them”.
"I consider "portrait-therapy” an excellent tool to repair a narcissistic wound caused by the lockdown - says Manuela Regenti, psychologist and psychotherapist - for many months we have been asked to give up the pampering we were used to and which gratified our ego: hairdressers, beauticians ... For this reason it is now important to return to take care of ourselves and a portrait that embellishes and satisfies us, both from a physical and psychological point of view, I think it is an excellent tool to use as a repair model.”
