Iris Plu is a master's student at Sint-Lucas Antwerp. With her background in photography, she has spent the past year exploring new territory in the world of sculpting.

 With Inhibited she explores the power of watching and of being watched. How do you present yourself? How does another person view you? How does your behavior change as a result of being observed?


Inspiration for Inhibited came from the artist’s personal experiences with others. Being observed by a stranger got her thinking: “How do I experience this situation?” How would another person experience this?

In our hurried society, an individual's inner self is quickly judged by a cursory glance at their appearance. Through plaster sculptures combined with video work, she explores the power of this non-verbal language.
