At This Art Fair, Sanne Maes will show a new series of works named “Lost identity”.
Lost identity is a new series of video portraits on computer and television screens; Portraits half hidden behind Rorschach-inspired inkblots. The Rorschach inkblot test is a psychological test to assess the personality of an individual, it involves the evaluation of a subjects response to ambiguous inkblots. The test is based on the human tendency to project interpretations and feelings on, in this case, inkblots.
The person in the video is half hidden, the identity is hard to determine. The person moves slowly, trapped in an increasingly repetitive movement. All this plays down on computer and television screens, media that have a major impact on our daily lives.www.sannemaes.nl
