The Talkative Silence of Faces is a project realized in 2010.

It consists in a study of the particularity of personal identity, in light of the theology of the face of the Orthodox Church. It is composed by a series of portraits of more or less randomly selected people, presented in a way that refers to the installation of an iconostasis.

 

The project was initially presented as my diploma exhibtion in 2010 in the National Superior School of Fine Arts of Paris, in the studio of Dominique Gauthier.

All faces were presented as equal, next to each other in the corrdior-shaped exhibition space, leading up to the installation of four bigger portraits of my grandparents. Next to the installation, a passage led to a dark room where the animation Nepsis was screened.
