Produced during the European Photography Festival in Arles, this series is consistuated of only 25 shots. The models came to pose directly after discovering the photographs during the exhibition. At the Van Gogh space, Idan Wizen had set up a studio juxtaposed with the exhibition, thus offering visitors the opportunity to come and pose.
About the project
Who's that nude in the living room ?
Showing humanity as it is, in its most natural state, its nudity and diversity.
In our paradoxical society where the nude is banned from all social networks, and yet the pornography is easily accessible to all, Idan Wizen and his photographs take the opposite tack by putting the naked body in the foreground, replacing sexuality for the enhancement of all human bodies. He expresses his vision of our society through his art that is unique in its desire to represent humanity the way it is, in its most natural state, in its nudity and diversity.
More than 2000 persons stripped naked for this art project
For over a decade, Idan Wizen has been receiving people in his photostudio to create from them a piece of art. With each person, he creates a unique fine art photography that is exhibited and purchased by art collectors. Over the years, he has realised thirteen different series that tell different stories about nudity and our society.
Everyone can be a piece of art
The project called Un Anonyme Nu dans le Salon (french for Who’s That Nude in the Living Room?), changes completely the vision of a naked body in society. The models are ordinary people and there is no casting. Oversized or skin-and-bone, midget or a giant, just a regular person from 18 to 99 years old, everyone is welcome. For most of them, the goal is to learn how to love themselves and to correct the disrupted and inaccurate vision of themselves.
The main idea of the project is to pay tribute to the uniqueness and diversity of the human race with its raw and unedited photographs. While fashion and advertising industries commemorate and glorify the perfect Apollonian and Aphroditian bodies, the artist stands aside of these dictates and has the courage to represent something different: a normal living body without any embellishment or beauty touch-ups. By showing his models without pageantry, and without erotism, the artist fights with one stone the growing puritanism and the omnipresence of pornography in our society, extracting at the same time the model from any socio-cultural background.
