Beyond the Body. A perception of appearance and identity. Royal College of Art graduate Imme van der Haak has printed photos of people onto silk shrouds so that the wearer’s image is overlaid with someone else’s face and body (+ movie). In the movie, two female dancers wear the translucent silk garments, which are printed with photos of men and women of various ages and appearances.

"My work focuses on altering the human form by affecting its figure with just one simple intervention. Photos of the human body are printed onto translucent silk which will create the possibility of physically layering different body’s, ages, generations and identities.

In a dance performance, the moving body manipulates the fabric so the body and the silk...

Triplica Equipo Sociocultural Association (ASTE) MASQUELIBROS is the organizer of MASQUELIBROS, the 1st International Artist Book Fair in Madrid. Innovative and educational in character, MASQUELIBROS seeks to spread the idea of books as art objects and to create a space to unite all of those who work and investigate in the field of artist books. The artist book, as a concept and a format, transmits ideas verbally and visually by utilizing a wide variety of materials, techniques and meanings. With its special emphasis on presentation it encompasses a universe of creative possibilities. This is a kind of artwork where creativity has a fundamental role and where “the book is a means and not an end.”


Venue: Escuelas Pías de San Fernando, c/Tribulete 14, Madrid.

Dates: 22, 23 and 24 June. Friday from 16:00 to 21:00 h //  Saturday from 11:00 to 21:00 h // Sunday form 11:00 to 19:00 h

Through her and with her, boundaries are crossed, consciousness expanded, and art as we know it is reborn.  She is, quite...
