A series of photos taken by friends and family members of the artist, showing them in their own homes. And showing painted self-portraits of the artist, given as presents on occasions such as birthdays and weddings. Being present in these paintings, the artist finds himself indirectly among his beloved ones. And amidst questions like: of what kind are the relationships and contexts of one’s own work, between private and public, art and the everyday, history and memory? Who am I, which image remains of me?
