Beyond the Body

Work: Beyond the Body; A perception of appearance and identity 2012 My work focuses on altering the human form by affecting its figure with just one simple intervention. Photos of the human body are printed onto translucent silk which will create the possibility of physically layering different body’s, ages, generations and identities. In a dance performance, the moving body manipulates the fabric so the body and the silk become one, distorting our perception or revealing a completely new physical form. The movement then brings this to life. Beyond the body brings into being an ambiguous image that intrigues, astonishes or sometimes even disturbs.
With special thanks to: Alexandra Green, Alice Gaspari, Catherine Bell, Maja Zamodja, Samuel Pegg, Hanna Donker.

Royal College of Art graduate Imme van der Haak has printed photos of people onto silk shrouds so that the wearer’s image is overlaid with someone else’s face and body (+ movie). In the movie, two female dancers wear the translucent silk garments, which are printed with photos of men and women of various ages and appearances.

A Designer holandesa Imme van der Haak , do Royal College of Art , imprimiu fotos de pessoas, de diferentes idades, aparências e gerações, em lençóis de seda transparentes.

Em uma apresentação de dança, dançarinos movimentam e manipulam o tecido revelando vislumbres de seus próprios corpos e rostos. É difícil dizer onde termina uma pessoa e começa a outra. O trabalho de Imme é brincalhão, mas sutil em sua abordagem. Ela se esforça constantemente para questionar e desafiar nossa percepção. Lindo trabalho, confira o vídeo!

En del af mit mål med en hel sommer i Berlin, er at indsamle inspiration. Forleden stødte jeg på denne fantastiske kunstner, som uden tvivl kommer i scrapbogen. Ord synes overflødige, når det kommer til hollandske Imme van der Haak. Jeg er mere end begejstret, og har på fornemmelsen, at jeg ikke er den eneste.

L’idea della giovane designer neerlandese Imme van der Haak mette a nudo la diversità indagando la forma del corpo umano nelle sue mutevoli espressioni. Il corpo di una persona si sovrappone a quello di un’altra. Vecchio su giovane, giovane su vecchio, donna o uomo: le identità si avvicinano fino a coincidere, poi tornano ad allontanarsi, si confondono e si riprendono. Ognuna col suo doppio. Per capire bisogna guardare il video: cosa è più vero, la giovane o la vecchia, l’uomo o la donna? Il gioco cui ci invita l’artista olandese Imme van der Haak è intrigante. Le foto di persone stampate su veli di seta si sovrappongono all’immagine della persona che li indossa. Facce e corpi di uomini e donne di varia età e aspetto che prendono vita nei movimenti delle due danzatrici del clip: un susseguirsi di tratti somatici ed espressioni che cambiano, convergono e si trasformano in una fusione tra i corpi reali e impressi sulla seta.

La giovane van der Haak, che si è recentemente diplomata in Product Design al Royal College of Art di Londra, è solita lavorare su alterazioni della forma del corpo umano a partire dall’introduzione di semplici elementi, mettendo in discussione il concetto di “normalità” e concentrandosi sulla quotidianità, troppo spesso data per scontata.

Beyond the Body gaat over uiterlijk en identiteit. In het filmpje met de dansers, een flipbook waarin portretfotos’ van oude mensen overlopen in een foto van een nog jonge persoon en een fotoboek speelt Imme van der Haak met beide. Soms is het resultaat wonderlijk dan weer ongemakkelijk. Het boek, in samenwerking met grafisch ontwerper Hanna Donker, is voor 20 euro te koop.

Helaas staat Van der Haak buitenspel voor onze jaarlijkse selectie van beste afstudeerders in Bright magazine. Beyond the body is namelijk gemaakt aan een buitenlandse school, namelijk de toonaangevende RCA in Londen.

Imme van der Haak刚从皇家艺术学院产品设计课程毕业,她的毕业设计“超越身体”与人体有关,模糊人的实际年龄和看上去的之间的界限。用短片的形式呈现,舞蹈演员们穿着简洁又流动变化的印有人体图案的真丝雪纺衫,揭开层层织物出场,像是对年龄的演绎。
