About this Event
Susan Van Ham has been playing around with images since 2009. In her work, van Ham splices two faces together to create a whole picture: hers and one from a magazine. She taps into that feeling everyone has experienced – of seeing a beautiful or special face and thinking: “I wish I’d look like that.”
In her series of portraits, she aims to get under the skin of the subject, letting go of her own identity and blending it with another. She can take the form of a movie star, model or musician. Man or woman.
Enjoy the work of Susan van Ham in our historic courtroom. Every portrait is part of a series of 10 and are uniquely numbered.
