Louisa Clement continues to question reality, true connections and the perception of faux intimacy in a digital world that is continually changing. Her photographic series is a response, an evolution to an incomprehensible strangeness to our own perceived identities.
Organised tightly together and barely touching in surreal splendor, 27 large-format photographs of fragmented black mannequins capture one simple truth. Identity.
Clement’s “Gliedermenschen” series is not only an assembly of hollow automatons, but a representation of closeness, intimacy, and the fragility of machines transforming into humans.
Clement continues to add a contemporary layer, an intriguing twist in her photographs, through cropping, colours and subject matter.
