Impostors ~ Art Impostors (Louis Vuitton)

Jessica Voorsanger worked with young people from the Louis Vuitton Summer Academy to produce a new series of photographs featuring: Clive Rowe (Tracey Beaker, BBC), Julian Rhind-Tutt (Green Wing) & Amanda Root (Persuasion, BBC). The photographs are a continuation of Voorsanger’s Impostor’s Series. The aspect of impostorism was emphasised with its ‘wrongness’ through gender cross-overs and/or race cross-overs. Clive Rowe, Julian Rhind-Tutt & Amanda Root posed as the artists: Yayoi Kasuma, Sofanisba Anguissola, Louise Bourgeois, Andy Warhol, Thomas Gainsborough & Pablo Picasso. The photos were shown at Louis Vuitton, 17-20 New Bond Street, London W1 (Dec 2010 – Jan 2011).
