Before photography, portraits were paintings, sculptures or drawings. The contemporary recording of our appearance goes elsewhere and is not interested in mere media. A portrait is more than just a recorded document. This is a first collective family portrait which invites us to delve deeper in the definition of portraiture and family ties.
Following the exhibition Wiċċ Imb Wiċċ held in April 2021, a dear friend came around requesting a family portrait that would imitate the style. The portrait features the husband, wife, daughter, grandmother, grandfather and dog. It reflects upon, story-tells and uncovers the terminology of family by giving an ephemeral form to all the intergenerational and interracial facets that make up that which we call family.
