Ô les mains

is a photo series by the Belgian artists Babak Hosseiny and Jeffrey Vanhoute. The original idea for this project was conceived around a decade ago after reading this philosophical statement by Wittgenstein. From this point onwards Babak Hosseiny imagined a series of drawings of situations where hands are no longer only hands, but become the physical embodiments of the obstacles, wishes or fears of the individual. A few years later Babak met Jeffrey with whom he shared his ambition to bring this project to life using photography to reinforce the impact of the images created. Jeffrey was won over by the idea and brought his sensitivity and mastery of photography to the project, which lead to the creation of a series of around ten images. “Ô les Mains” is the first exhibition produced together by Babak Hosseiny and Jeffrey Vanhoutte.
