ARI VERSLUIS
Resounding identity/fashion communicodes as ad-hocumentary.
From axes of observation, Versluis records expressions of outer-confidence, tempting stimuli to drive the frame.


EXACTITUDES
ARI VERSLUIS & ELLIE UYTTENBROEK
Over more than twenty five years of investigation into social typology, systematically documented as classified portraits-of-twelve, uniform in stance, under (yet above) one caption.
Exactitudes provides a somewhat rational, anthropological record of societal attempts to distinguish oneself from others by assuming a group identity through manners of striking dress code, etiquette and social sensation.
