What can a portrait mean or make possible?
From September 2020 to June 2021, Karel put his body at the service of 2D and 3D visual artists. He asked all of them the same question: "Would you like to make a portrait that you believe is a truly embodied portrait of me, seen through your eyes?" Now Karel makes 36 encounters between him and portrait artists shareable in an installation: 36.
36 is part of a two-year research project into portrait-making as a way to gain insights into the way visual artists look at bodies today; The transparent body.
