Lost Room

The 6th collection of the project "Who’s That Nude In The Living Room?"

Idan Wizen projected the model into a room out of time and space

Few words about this collection

"Moving people out of space, out of time to take pictures of themselves in their simplest form"

In the Lost Room collection, the models were projected into a rather intriguing universe. The title was inspired by a mini television series called “The Lost Room” which marked the artist a lot and which was a science fiction series where precisely, the particularity was to have objects moved out of space and out of time, and quite a bit of anachronism. The objective of the collection was therefore to do much the same thing by moving people out of space, out of time to take their picture in the simplest form.

The play is not set in a specific era. It is a room without windows, but also without a door. We can’t go back there. We can’t get out there. They are just graphic elements, but do not necessarily represent a predefined or preconceived place. The objects will give meaning to the photograph, but he will have the idea of having a free interpretation of each. The artist has generally used them, in a rather eccentric, quite quirky aspect. An old coat rack is used as a spear, a lamp stand used as a sword, a piece of furniture that is not there at all to climb on. But which gives us precisely, a visual and a really different and really surprising aesthetics.

Lost Room is the 6th collection of “Who’s That Nude in the Living Room?” art project which aims to constitute the largest photographic series ever made representing humanity as it is, in its most natural state, its nudity and its diversity. this concept of photographic art aims to bring together thousands of models, volunteers of all ages and from all social categories to constitute a huge gallery of portraits of men and women of today. These photographs, in their multitude and the originality of each one of them, their dynamism and their naturalness, show to universal human beauty, far beyond the restrictive socio-cultural and aesthetic criteria of our time.

Lost room : Photographs out of time and space

Lost Room is a collection of the project Who’s That Nude In The Living Room, a collection that respects the same principles as the others of the project. Namely, models who have never posed before (neither in photos, nor naked), they are not casted (everyone can come from the age of 18), and who come for a photo session, where we will keep only one photograph of each individual. There is no retouching, these are authentic photographs of each individual, they are meant to be made into works of art up to very large formats which are 80 x 120 cm, and to be exhibited, in exhibitions, as well as in private homes.

A room out of time and space, a place apart filled with unusual, odd objects. And in the middle of this, the model seems to have been teleported there, finding himself facing the lens of Idan Wizen. Fear, surprise, humor, sweetness… This is what the Lost Room series and its baroque tapestry reveal to us. A series that places the anonymous in a strange, almost surreal place.

Placing models and objects in a timeless space...

Lost Room

2013/2014 – 100 artworks – C Print – Edition of 4 – unique on its size

Each photo is unique just like its model and never touched up. This inevitably challenges us and creates in us a curious feeling of closeness, of belonging. Because these models are all of us.

Every photo is unique,
but can you imagine how stong can be a composition with more of them ?
