Miguel Martim

MA Contemporary Photography, practices and philosophies

| PERSONA | – “Derives from Latin, where it originally referred to a theatrical mask. Can refer to either the public image of one’s personality, or the social role that one adopts, or a fictional character”. In this artwork, the visual artist Miguel Martim (he/she/they) is intrigued about normativity, patriarchy, prejudice, life in different contexts… The impact on our whole perception ofeverything. Even the self-perception… Are we just an amalgamation of what others want? Can we really deconstruct ourselves to see a “clearer picture”?
