This is an on-going series of work centered around the question, 'am I just a body?'. This began in 2018 in the bathroom, a safe space, in a deep but small bath tub in a community house in Antwerp. The bathroom, or more specifically, the space that we stand or sit in to clean our bodies, became my backdrop as a bathed or showered - an intimate enactment that is an everyday ritual. It's not necessarily aboutbeing naked.
From there on I created a set of self-portraits in each of my three accommodations in Antwerp, dressing up and dressing down, as I performed as anude female. These photographs echoes the theme of self-portrait, however, concealment of my identity is a factor that has been shaped into the work. This highlights the thoughts I had in my adolescence that men saw me as a desirable body, and less as a human being that they wanted to get to know.
