Emmascarats
Masked Figures
1976/2020
Emmascarats (Masked Figures, 1976) consists of a number of black and white photographs showing a portrait bust of a woman with her face covered with a range of items. Also presented is the sequence of the face uncovered and being gradually covered till it is completely hidden. The mask, the act of masking, conceals, covers, hides, erases but also blurs. In a manner similar to the action of dissolving the face, this group of works is a series of portraits without substance, without subjectivity: they are anti-portraits. The individual, the woman, disappears. Whereas in other instances we find her ‘objectified’, here the attention is drawn to the attributes, which hide her.
