Beatrice Marchi,
Summer in the
North with
Loredana

@ Hester
— 

Beauty is
somewhere,
and my hands
are capable of it...
” 

The exhibition:
 
Is Hamburg-based 
Beatrice Marchi's
first solo with 
Hester in New York,
for which she has
developed an
emotional narrative,
played out via a
fictional webcam 
identity named
Loredana’ — a
professional Internet
makeup artist, who
grapples with the
highs and lows 
of friendship and
social media stardom. 

Featured works: 
· Pastel & Acrylic
on wood
· Pastel on paper
· Acrylic under glass,
and satin
· Fiberglass, silicon
(claws)
· 2 x HD Videos 

Whose approval 
did Loredana really
need anyway?

Despite her anger, 
the egoic fallout 
didn’t really sink in. 
With resolve, she 
turned back to the 
vanity and 
contoured
a bluish 
bruise on
her 
cheekbone. 
Bruises appear 
any time of year.
