In her self-portraits series, LAURA _ AkiÓ->, works simultaneously as director, photographer,set and costume designer.
Creating intriguing images that appear to be from a fictional narrative, LAURA _ AkiÓ->, portrays the World, revealing to us other worlds-inhospitable places, full of mystery and enchantment, that pervades ludic and reality.
When translating the three-dimensional kinetic and dynamic world for two-dimensional and static image, thats it, creating an image, a self-portrait, Laura Carvalho, raises questions about our consciousness of self image, since it creates in her own photographic representation, a “translation” of herself in the figure of LAURA _ AkiÓ->.
Self image and self- portrait, are constantly generated images by us, that requests from us to be revealed. Emphasizing this point in her series of self-portraits, the artist construct her images not seeking to articulate a meaning, the contrary, her images works in the self-representation to hide something.
Going against the oppressive idea of normality, the composition of each picture suggests the creation of different worlds and narratives. Here the imagination of the spectator, practice a cruciall paper- renew the perception of the image portrayed.
