camouflage art by desiree palmen

old city suit / surveillance camera project (jerusalem 2006)

 

 

the dutch artist desiree palmen lives and works in rotterdam, NL. many of her pieces are based around the idea of camouflage / the act of being unseen / undetected. the series of work which explore this theme include ‘old city suit / surveillance camera project’ (jerusalem 2006), camouflage ( 2001+ 2004) and streetwise / surveillance camera project (2002).

to create the site specific suits palmen photographs a precise location. she then paints the image of the place onto a suit by hand. a person then wears the finished suit and poses in the original location – trying to blend into the space as much as possible.
