Angélica Dass is a Spanish-Brazilian artist based in Madrid. She has been internationally acclaimed through her pivotal project Humanae which is a collection of portrait photos of people revealing the true beauty of human color. The project has been showcased in numerous exhibitions and talks across the continents, and through the TED Global in Vancouver in 2016, philosophy of the project has reached an extended number of audience around the world.
In 2014 she was selected by TIME Magazine as one of the “Nine Brazilian Photographers You Need to Follow”.
Humanæ is a “work in progress” with which the artist intends to deploy a chromatic range of different human skin colors. Those who pose are volunteers who have known the project and decide to participate. There is no previous selection of participants and there are no classifications relating to nationality, gender, age, race, social class or religion. Nor in there an explicit intention to finish it on a specific date. It is open in all senses and it will include all those who want to be part of this colossal global mosaic. Ending would be reached only by completing all of the world’s population.
Author compares the sample of skin color taken from the model's face to the universal industrial system of color clasification – PANTONE, diluting with that the false preeminence of some races over others based on skin color or social condition.
You will be able to see a number of photographs from this fascinating project on Zagreb's streets, as well as meet the artist Angélica Dass at her lecture on April 9th, 2018 at 11 am, cinema Europe - Great Hall.
