Lavatory Self Portraits in the Flemish Style

Filed under: art classes, paper crafts, performace art — Tags: , , — popularkinetics @ 8:38 pm

Here’s a novel approach to developing an alternate persona: Nina Katchadourian’s extemporaneous “Flemish” portraits created with materials typically found in  public restrooms: paper towels, toilet paper and seat covers. Katchadourian frequently works with simple found materials, improvising them into artworks around a specific theme which she then photographs. For the 2012 election she has created a piece called Monument to the Unelected with campaign signs she’s designed to commemorate those who failed in their election bids. A version of this piece is now on display at the Washington Post offices here in Washington, DC. To see more of Katchadourian’s work, visit her web site.
