Death Mask

 

Both still life and a self-portrait,  « Death Mask » is a polyptych displaying the dramatic robbery scene of The Boy’s funerary mask, chronologically depicted in five parts. Death masks began in antiquity. Having one made was an honour reserved for kings and people of great accomplishment. The Boy’s death mask is shown like a relic, while The Joker also appears in the sequence.

 

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.
