Extended Family

(pictures see below)

Extended Family is an art project in which I question basic intuitions about portraiture, identity, control and dependence.

I paint faces of different people on top of each other until a new face emerges. People I know personally see and mingle with people from far beyond my personal habitat. 

The series was exhibited at Art Ghent in February, presented at SMAK as part of Ben Benaouisse's total performance in April and is exhibited at length in Santo, Ghent, from 27 August to 5 September 2021. 

As a part of this project I published a book with contributions of artists, curators and philosophers. Order the book by sending me an e-mail. aaronwillem7@gmail.com

The book presentation, an interview with me by Anyuta Wiazemsky Snauwaert, was recorded.

You are welcome to become part of the extended family! If you'd like to, please send me a picture of yourself.
