Let Me See You ยท 2013

selection of 46 blindcontour drawings made during a 10-day gallery performance in gallery napa, helsinki in june 2012. portraits were drawn of each gallery visitor in 1-3 minutes.

In these drawings portrait escapes its classical attributes: likeness between the model and the drawing means suddenly something else. To draw without looking at the paper grows into an intense yet sudden and spontaneous encounter between the model and the drawer.
