Einfuhlung: an aesthetic term, the way of feeling oneself in a work of art, a word which through various convolutions became ‘empathy’ in English.”
Einfuhlung is a body of self portraits in which the artist, Elise Martin, manipulates her own likeness, in an attempt to find common ground with the proverbial Other. It has been said that the creation of art both encourages and is dependent upon empathetic thinking. In this collection of works, the artist maps, charts and dissects her own image in a sincere effort to create better understanding and human connection.
