Self-Portrait, Dedicated to Dr. Eloesser by Frida Kahlo, (1940) re-staged by Amanda Ouk


Dedicated to Dr. Eloesser by Frida Kahlo, (1940)

“Here is a portrait I wanted to recreate at home. For my clothing, I am wearing a hoodie backwards to depict the folds in Frida’s fabric. For the accessories, I have masks on my head to replace Frida’s flower headband, latex gloves to match her earrings, and a few sheets of toilet paper with the phrase “stay home” written several times. All these items are related to what seems to be or is a necessity to our world today in the pandemic. Lastly I replaced Frida’s necklace with my phone charger because I always find myself on my phone during quarantine.”
