HUGUES ANHES STUDIO

Statement & Press

ARTIST STATEMENT

Hugues Anhes uses photography as a medium which allows his subects to reveal themselves.  Through their eyes he touches souls in their intimacy to expose part in all of us which is universal.

With his in-situ art project he named "Affichez-Vous" (Show yourself up) Hugues Anhes  gives a pretext for people who never met to change their point of view about each other and themselves. Hugues Anhes’s technique is to  make portraits of different people  which  are  then printed and superposed on each other.  He then  scratches  and alters these  surface and  revealing  and mixing differences making us reflect on what is the same and different. 
His installations build cultural bridges and provide  us with a reflection of who we are as human beings and contribute to creating  a new collective consciousness.
