A Sense of Identity

| Underneath |

A starkly individual perspective on issues of gender and identity is central to Kamolpan Chotvichai’s compelling black and white photo artworks. She uses understandings of the Buddha’s teachings on Anatta (doctrine of non-self ) as her principle in assembling these award-winning self-portraits – eliminating her face and obliterating her identity to create an anonymous but stunningly individual image. By literally stripping away images of her body she abandons attachment to her physical identity, dissolving her own personal individuality. Her meticulous work in forming these portraits – such as hand-cutting images of her body to create flowing lines of ribbons – also challenges the traditional limitations of paper and canvas.
