In Dis/Appear I shot myself upright and on a chair made by my grandfather, with my body either leaning back or rigid on the chair, in front of my red curtain. The suit appears upright on a reversed figure, or reversed on a facing figure which is easily recognisable as me, because of my orange-red hair. In these images there is an ambiguity in the result created by the suit on backwards and the body falling.
This is a performance of lament and mourning in the presence of death. It is a private/personal ritual of lamenting my father that points to the finality of death and the psychological state of the mourner.
