Tiane Doan na Champassak worked on anonymous photographs he found posted on the blogs and websites of the Indian subcontinent’s exhibitionists and swingers. The images he collected are posted by men, picturing their wives or partners completely exposed, but with any details threatening to reveal their identity carefully masked with photoshop. The artist analysed and extracted the pictures and drawings, which exhibitionists use to cover themselves, and he presented those on their own, without context. By doing so he demonstrated the ambiguity of what is recovered and what is masked, while simultaneously revealing the diversity of motifs and shapes the extracted images can take.
