(Heerlen, 1971)

Twin sisters Liesbeth and Angelique Raeven form an artistic duo who create videos, photographs, installations and performances. The work focuses on body-related themes such as physical appearance, beauty, certain bodily disorders (such as anorexia), and their relationship to identity, obsessions and feelings of love, hate, self-acceptance and self-esteem.

Dead Man Walking (2009)
Video.

Dead Man Walking presents us with a person whose physical appearance has undergone a radical change… they explore feelings of hatred, despair and impotence in the face of the effects of antiretroviral treatment on the body… “Dead Man Walking” looks at the dysfunction between appearance and identity in a society that places extreme importance on physical beauty, and at the difficulty of accepting an image that does not match what we feel, but that is the image of our own body and therefore impossible to escape.
