SUBJECT

This book of roughly forty portraits that share a common denominator: the presentation of individuality in the context of the subject’s naked existence. Their ‘being there’, thus constitutes, in a number of ways, a document on the ‘other’, the proof of existence and a mirror of the spectator’s own existential uncertainties. ‘Subject’ takes us on a journey into the interior of our ‘I’ through our reflection in the ‘other’. The works of twenty-four artists display a prevalence for photography, but also include works of sculpture, installation and painting, and together posit a very clear question: are we still capable of looking at the ‘other’ in her or his full human dignity in order to see our own nakedness?
