UNEASY EVENT: LEPIDOPTEROPHOBIA
Did you know that Nicole Kidman suffers from a fear of butterfly’s, lepidopterophobia – the fear of flying insects. For the ‘Uneasy’ themed show at Parlor Gallery in Atlanta, I chose to share this portrait of a friend with the same phobia. The white silhouetted butterflies are placeholders where I applied faux butterfly’s on the glass and frame around the printed portrait. The model was asked to remove the butterflies when she arrived. The action was designed to motivate the model to shed her phobia by literally dropping the fear to the floor.
