'Do not feed the animal' (After Judith Leyster) is part of the series 'ALTER IDEM'. This series (named after the famous Cicero quote "Amicus est tamquam alter idem" - a friend is, as it were, a second self) deals with concepts of identity in the social media age - self-staging, alter ego projections and the ambivalence between delightful deception and the quest for truth form the thematic core.
In the field of tension between art history and the presence, the focus is on timeless phenomena such as narcissism, exhibitionism and vanity - are selfies really reflections of ourselves? Why are we craving for followers, and what role does personal privacy play in today’s society?
