In Amanda Kyritsopoulou’s portraits of faceless characters, both the viewer and the subject lack clear vision. The viewer is confronted with uncomplicated but perplexing out-of-focus photographs and an inevitable desire for meaning, whilst the subject, with their face pressed down against a pillow, cannot see, but only wonder. Perhaps the clue could be in their elaborate titles: How much is too much, is a strong mind also heavy, who is responsible? Sooner or later, the open-endness of these irreverent, near comical titles will leave us wondering whose vision is the fuzziest, activating the feeling–or the vision–that the possibility of an answer is as absurd as it is unreliable.
