SCHILTE & PORTIELJE !

The Dutch couple Schilte & Portielje  creates a universe of black and white pictures with solitary and sometimes distant looking figures in the center. Their likenesses could easily be interpreted as the result of a process used in the days of analogue photography. But these bodies, mainly women with peculiar contorted, idiosyncratic extremities and elaborate Haute-Couture style clothes, actually reveal something else. They are willfully and artfully constructed.
