Following her previous work (Moon) where the characters hide their faces voluntarily to make them whoever you imagine, Andrea take away the identity of the character by conceal their faces. “It seemed a bit aggressive to me, especially because was me “brush stroking” their faces, stealing their identity.For that reason I decided to do it to myself by taking self-portraits. And it has a new sense: I strip myself of my identity, but I can be whoever the spectators want. I have a lot of possible new identities except my original”.
“The Unknown” is about the identity concept and the importance of it when we are talking about a portrait.
