Revenge Porn

 

The Villain (villain archetype) is about to eat a hotdog in an American diner decor. Replacing the sausage, we notice a human penis. Eating a phallus is a highly symbolic act of aggression and transgression, a disturbing scene worthy of a classical tragedy or an ancient tribal ritual. The satirical image equates sex and food as similar dangers.

 

SELF-REFLECTIONS is a series of satirical and surreal self-portraits, presenting a repertoire of four personalities that live inside the same person. I photograph my different sub-personalities as archetypes and fairy tale characters. I name them: The Villain, The Joker, The Prince and The Boy.

 

The images, meticulously constructed like paintings with in-depth work on their characterisation, colour and style, form allegorical tableaux whose narratives intertwine artistic, cinematic and philosophical references. They evoke the construction of identity, childhood, death, freedom, madness… sometimes to comedic effect.

 

Irony and subversion invite the viewer to a striking world filled with a strange chromatic unreality, a theatre of the absurd where a single actor plays all the roles.
