One can play hide and seek for many reasons: psychological, political (see previous posts) or for simple amusement.

When I discovered ‘Asia’ by Cecilia Paredes (Peru 1950, lives in the USA) quite a while ago, I remembered Vuillard and his ‘Mother and Sister’ painting (see post below). Both artists have a taste for the decorative and their characters tend to disappear in their surroundings.

Comparison stops here of course. Paredes’ photography seems freer of intellectual meaning. She staged and photographed multiple mimetic bodies (often her own – see the source) .

It is spectacular, often elegant, and fun!
