14 hand-printed analogue enlargements, 30x 20 cm

During June 2021, self-portraits with the hashtag #selfienation on Instagram caught my interest. For me, these selfies represent several important themes such as social aspiration, unpaid work, the normalisation of the human body and self-alienation. For this reason, over the next two weeks, I made hundreds of screenprints of posts with this hashtag. I then adjusted their contrast and brightness, printed them on A4 paper and hung them up on a framework opposite a wet school blackboard. I then took pictures of the reflections of the different selfies on this layer of water using an analogue camera. I ended up with eighteen films of negatives, full of variously deformed and blurred portraits. I selected forty-four photos that I am currently enlarging in a dark room.
