What Remains

 

About the fashion series: ‘What remains' (2012), Aisha Zeijpveld

 

 

 

Sketches from austrian artist Egon Schiele were the starting point for photographer Aisha Zeijpveld to make the fashion series 'What remains'. Schiele's sketches show 'unfinished' figures. For 'What remains' Aisha translated this way of sketching in her photographs. By cutting out silhouettes in cardboard, she forces her characters in unfamiliar and not self-chosen shapes. Arms and shoulders, in uncomfortable poses, dissolve in their cardboard  background. By using optical illusions, dimensions become obscured and the superficial reality is never what it appears to be. (Roos Menkhorst)
