LIMINALITY I

Liminality I is a curious and critical examination of identity. I examine the concept of self as nothing but accumulated experience and coincidence in a state of constant change.

To challenge the view of the self as a fixed whole, I created a series of masked portraits arranged as windows into the liminal phase – the threshold involved in every change and movement, where we are no longer in the past but nor yet in the future. I shot each subject in his or her own home wearing a mask, which I improvised on location from objects belonging to the subject.

With this work, I critically examine the concept of having an identity by looking at the self as an ongoing chain of minute changes. I invite the viewer into an open space where identity is flowing and potential – an uncertain and perhaps dangerous space full of possibilities.
