Portraits getting drawn in the same way a piece of information circulates by word-ofmouth, through this imperfect medium the French call “Téléphone Arabe”: such is the proposal made by Kolkoz for their project. Progressively modifying the fundamental data given at the outset, the Arab portraits are being developed in the artists’ circle; for them, each encounter thus gives the chance to try this game. Each participant only has to respect one rule: to reproduce the given “version” of the portrait as faithfully as possible.
This way, each participant becomes one link of a chain where the successive portraits become ever more distorted versions of the original.
