SELF-PORTRAITS

While making them, I thought about where people like to immortalise themselves and photograph themselves in particular moments in life; where they tend to stop by, what are the things that draw their eye. For example, during holidays and trips they immortalise themselves next to some interesting architectural objects, monuments, exotic landscapes, etc.
I decided to have a little fun and immortalise myself next to figures of the art world that are interesting to me. To be more precise, next to some of their thoughts they have expressed – as if they were a person next to whom I can portray myself. With this cycle of self-portraits I wanted to create the impression of a set of frozen scenes from a performance, which I would put on if I did not lack the artistry for it. I tried to get deeper into the thought of an artist that was interesting for me and play it, “twist” the soul and body in a way I could become closer to it.
