Maybe, this series is more complex than my other work. My first sketch intended the silhouette to look non-human, like a mysterious figure of a monster or an insect. But then, I preferred it to be related to fashion with mimesis, the mimicry of insects. So the typical archetypes of the silhouette are important to evoke a sort of déjà vu.
And yes, the title Transvest doesn’t refer exactly to its original meaning. After effacing their identity with backlight, these outlines don’t represent any gender. By working with collage and photomontage, there are multiple fragments of images on the inside of the silhouette, as the body takes in the universe (satellite photos, baroque decorations, mountain slopes, candy, ruins, crowds, cars, etc.). When we look at this work from a distance, the inside shows the textures of the clothes. But if we get close, we can find different fragments of images in the world that present the visible and invisible. So this series represents multiple mimicry matters in the different faces.
