This diptych depicts a young body with two heads - one seen from the front, the other from the back – with a semi-ghostly appearance.
The two-headed twins Cynthia and Celinde feature repeatedly in the artist’s iconography. They took shape through her fascination with the American Siamese twins Abby and Brittany Hensel. Crespo’s work looks at what appears to be both on the margins of art and of society, and reflects a changing world.
