UNPLACED/UNFACE is an exhibition of recent art photography by Reka Komoli. This, Reka's first solo show, is an exploration of personal identity from two complementary perspectives: how identity changes in time, and how it can be changed by masks.

About

UNFACED uses traditional mid-century Mexican masks to explore the socially disruptive power of a malleable identity. These masks were used in festivals to embody the antagonists of the people - colonials, devils, death itself - in order to mock and humble them. In these portrait photographs of the masks themselves, Reka presents the extraordinary latent force of the unfaced.

UNPLACED inquires into the Self's relationship to the Other of its earlier Self. You are not (entirely) the same person you were in the past, but are continually changing. Far enough back in time, you are not your Self but an Other, someone who is similar to, yet significantly different from, your present Self. How can the old and new Selves reconnect?
