Søren Dahlgaard: Dough Portraits

Danish artist Søren Dahlgaard has created a series of "Dough Portraits" of people in his native Copenhagen, Kosovo and the Maldives as part of an art project that has traveled throughout the world. The posers were invited to play with and mold the dough before placing it on their heads. The result is an innovative take on the traditional self-portrait. But why dough? Søren Dahlgaard explains: “Dough and bread are universal. They are things we can all relate to. We know how it is made, how it feels to touch it, but when it appears in art, it can be difficult to place. It wakes people’s curiosity.”
