Over at Opening Ceremony’s blog, Chantel Tattoli interviews artist Jennifer Reiland about her amazing new series, Doppelgangers: The Great War Through a Mirror. I love everything about this series of illustrations, which is basically the apex of my obsessions. Including:
"Reiland developed the series of illustrations during her recent nine-month residency with La Fondation des Etats-Unis, though she started researching the culture of World War I while she was still a student at Cooper Union. Reiland saw a connection between the “twin years” of 1914 and 2014. The eighteen pictures blend scenes from the two years to explore themes of war, technology, pornography, identity, destiny—and especially how history doubles back on itself."
