Identities is a collection of morphological drawings of Great Grey Shrikes (Lanius excubitor) from several areas in the Dutch provinces of Friesland, Drenthe and Overijssel. These are detailed illustrations that are displayed in a standardised layout.
The basis of the work Identities is partly scientific; firstly there is the fundamental phrasing of the underlying question: can individual Great Grey Shrikes be recognized on the basis of their outward appearance? Secondly both in the field as in the studio a standardized procedure takes place: the structure is created by means of through observation of the variations in outer characteristics and this is manifested further by the resulting standardized illustrations. By drawing them the differences between individuals was revealed and I became aware of their unique characteristics.
For anyone who has studied them closely, no two Great Grey Shrikes are alike.
