After The Lights Go Out




The concept for Daniëlle van Ark's (Schiedam, 1974) ongoing project After the Lights Go Out is simple and clever. Daniëlle erects an improvised photo studio in the backstage. Immediately after the concert, the artist takes a seat in the studio. For just a moment, they forget how they should portray themselves on the photo. A mask falls off, and a pure portrait is created.
