Humanae is a photographic work in progress by artist Angélica Dass. Currently composed of almost 4,000 portraits from volunteers all around the globe, Humanæ pursues to document humanity’s true colors and bring up a critical reflection on the white, red, black and yellow false labels associated with race. The project does not select participants and there is no date set for its completion. It is a journey of open-ended possibilities that enriches the way we see ourselves, beyond faces and colors. Nowadays, the artist has been doing portraits in 36 different cities and 20 different countries.
I actually painted for the first time in 50 years! Angelica was terrific and our session was appropriately child-like and profound--because what color are we, really?
This workshop was powerful. Angélica showed in a very visual way how race really is a human invention
Again, all of the above highlights just how important Angélica's work is, not as just a theoretical workshop, but as a way to proactively fight society’s demons!
