A portrait created after two models – the twins. One of them was named Klára and the other Kamila. Both had long hair. I thought about some depersonalization and looked for differences in the twins’ identical form. For many people at the time, the hairstyle of both girls was a recognizable element. The result of the work on the portrait was a kind of average of the face of both girls. I stripped the portrait of hair, as an element of impermanence, and created the image of a girl shedding her hair like a monk. I have always perceived hair as energy, protection, but also as a form of transience and can also have a sexual meaning.
