Inner Self by Anne-Sophie GUILLET
Signed copies after the book launch – 9 of May –
Anne-Sophie Guillet has created the series Inner Self of thirty-four photographs of androgynous-looking young people between 2013 to 2018.
Most often chance encounters in her daily routine, these young people attracted Guillet’s attention with their way of seemingly escaping the binary, normative model of man/woman.
Whether they simply enhanced the effect for aesthetic reasons or underwent hormonal treatment, they all convey a certain “gender trouble”.
And while their face-on portraits seem draped in a heavy silence, there is nothing mute about them. They question how identity is constructed and represented in front of the Other.
