Taus Makhacheva, ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) Spa (detail), 2018

Experience a one-of-a-kind facial treatment inside artist Taus Makhacheva’s sculptural installation ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) Spa for Liverpool Biennial 2018: Beautiful world, where are you?

Each one-to-one session includes surface assessment, deep cleaning and plastifying masks and lasts approximately 30 minutes. During the treatment, stories of artworks that have disappeared throughout the history of art will be told.

The spa products have been designed by Tigran Geletsyan from 22|11 Cosmetics exclusively for this project. The sessions are conducted by performers following a script by writer David McDermott.

Please be aware that the Sculptural Signature Facial treatment cannot be performed on people who have active herpes, severe acne, diabetes, are pregnant or those who have recently had teeth work done. A list of ingredients will be made available shortly for those who have any allergy concerns. If you have any other questions, please email info@biennial.com

Liverpool Biennial will not be held responsible for any reactions or issues that may arise for participants as a result of the treatment.
