Gérôme Castell (Cabaretist)
The exhibition ‘Publik-Privat” presents some very unusual portraits. These are perfect symmetrical faces that you will never encounter in real life. Each single half of the face is mirrored to itself. Leaving you with two perfectly symmetrical portraits.
This method allows the viewer to observe each side of the face isolated from the other side. The resulting right chimeras reflect the left side of the brain, well known for it’s logical thinking. The left chimeras reflect the tendencies of the right brain, where our intuitive thinking is processed.
These portraits show an intimate insight into the personality of the photographed person.
