Requiem for an Autoportrait

Requiem for an Autoportrait. Print poster 170x120 cm. Bic pen. Digital image made of accumulation of more than 130 bic pen drawings. The work of fragmentation of the body imposes itself in this immense self-portrait, in a wink, to the selfization of our time. Questioning the stakes of the self-portrait in art at the time of the absolute and totalitarian vulgarization of the selfie. The bus shelter format of the poster is a reminder of the mercantile exploitation of the image of the human body.
