As part of our upcoming exhibition, DESIGN AND VIOLENCE, a co-production with the Museum of Modern Art, New York, we are showcasing Humanae, a ‘work in progress’ by the Brazilian photographer Angelica Dass.
Humanae currently features over 3000 photographs of residents from 24 cities in 15 different countries. Humanae is a chromatic inventory, a project that reflects on the colours beyond the borders of our codes by referencing the Pantone® colour scheme. The project development is based on a series of portraits whose background is dyed with the exact tone extracted from a sample of 11x11 pixels of the portrayed´s nose. Humanae is a pursuit for highlighting our true colours, rather than the untrue red and yellow, black and white associated with race. Humanae is a celebration of the true colours of human skin.
Science Gallery Dublin would like to invite the residents of Ireland to participate and have their portraits taken for Humanae as part of our DESIGN AND VIOLENCE exhibition.
