Heautoscopy

Heautoscopy is a term from psychiatry and indicates the perception of yourself outside of yourself.
The exhibition showed drawings in which dopplegängers regard each other. They seem to doubt the other and thus to themselves. We are black boxes to each other: something goes in, something comes out, but why, and what happens on the inside? We don’t know. Loneliness is unsolvable, except maybe by splitting up into two identical people.
The works explore the unreliability of perception; drawing can be understood as a way to investigate perception in itself, as the pencil is like a seismograph for thoughts.
