An Intimate Imitation
Born through the restrictions enforced through lockdown and social distancing due to the Covid-19 Virus; An Intimate Imitation explores how the essence of another person can be represented through self-portraiture - using subtle nuances, gazes and clothing to do so. Using a series of video portraits sequenced together, the work highlights Patrick’s differing imitations of his parents and a close friend, allowing their essence, personality and attitude towards being observed seep through the fabric of the work without them physically being present. The video portraits have been translated into still portraits, allowing the observer to explore the subtle nuances at their own pace.
