Genetic Longing

“I am against: general ideas / the nude / the appropriation of images / the mystification of the untitled / the glorification of artistic doubt / the fuzzy edges of sensitivity / old sins / and useless guilt.”

London-based photographer Valeria Herklotz and Gruppe art & fashion director Tim Heyduck explore surface and sensuality in this series of images inspired by painter Marlene Dumas, reimagining what the artist once called her ‘erotic displays of mental confusions… with intrusions of irrelevant information’.
