The Kaboom! Process - Dough portrait


Danish artist Søren Dahlgaard has created the series ‘Dough Portraits’ in 'your boy will amount to nothing project'The participants were invited to play with and mold the dough before placing it on their heads. The result is an innovative take of the classical portrait. But why? Søren Dahlgaard explains: ‘It is relating to both, the history to photography and painting but the face is covered with a 10 kg lump of dough and it makes the viewer look at the body language and cloths and expression of the hands instead of the face. Its playful to participate the the subjects identity and dough is something universal we all can relate to.Søren Dahlgaard done this project in 14 countries so far.
