Levi van Veluw

Natural transfer I, 2009

As an art academy student, Levi van Veluw made self-portraits with his own face – literally – as the work site. He then stuck pebbles, water plants, grass or pieces of wood onto them, or drew decorative patterns on them with a ballpoint pen. Finally, he photographed and filmed himself always in the ...same three-quarter pose. After his training, Van Veluw revived his conceptual series, this time covering his face with artificial hair, as here. He looks like someone with hypertrichosis lanugiosa (abnormal hair growth).
