Peter Land – Back to Square One

Hyperrealist self-portrait of Peter Land as a homeless person.

Back to Square One is a self-portrait of Peter Land, a multi-disciplinary artist from Denmark, as homeless person. The title of the work refers to the board games that send you back to the first square and the cardboard boxes are the spaces of the game. The shape signifies that even bending over backwards gets you nowhere.

  1. So awful. Here in Chicago, winters can be horrendous and the homeless suffer so much. Shelters are often too religious, dangerous (especially for women) and disease is also an issue. So many don’t go.
