“A man who walks needs to be mirrored in his fellow man in reverse to emphasize his movement”.

Marc Chagall


ANAPODA - Greek for “upside down” – comes from the need for subverting all logic, by challenging the ordinary perception and by dealing with our own myths and internal monsters. The observers themselves will turn the images upside down, by following either a rational or an emotional perspective. This carousel of glancing eyes, different masks, and multiple identities is inspired by the surrealist portraits of Spanish photographer Ana Hell. Two odd-looking women abruptly find themselves in a capsized world, an alternate dimension where everything flows backwards and where fragments of life and stereotyped personalities are mixed together. In this upside down world the sky becomes the floor, since the perception of the body is constantly illusory.
