Beyond the body, a perception of appearance and identity.
Imme van der Haak has printed photos of people onto silk shrouds so that the wearer’s image is overlaid with someone else’s face and body. In the movie, you see two female dancers wear the translucent silk garments, which have photos printed of men and women of various ages and appearances. As the dancers move and reveal glimpses of their own bodies and faces, it’s hard to tell where one person ends and the other begins.
By Beyond the Body Imme van der Haak strives to question and challenge our perception of what is ‘normal’, focusing on the everyday, which we might take for granted.
