Collection: Temptation

The Temptation -painting series reflects on the representations and normes of love in a relationship. Special attention is given to moments where one's hopes and expectations collide with action. Temptation Island is a reality TV-series where participating couples are split between two islands and they only get to see each other's conduct through edited videos, on a screen with headphones on.

Often in these clips the couples find their partner behaving in a strange, unfamiliar way. If being loved means also being seen by the other, how come in these videos the couples barely recognize each other? In this hallway of mirrors and screens, what is the part of the spectator?
