In the previously undisclosed series 'Second Sight' (2011) Enrico Nagel distorts the beauty of smooth male model images cut out from fashion magazines by submitting them to water baths, burning, colouring and drawing. Having been suffused with a new history, the images start to pose questions about the story of their own making – initially made to sell products, they now seem to inhabit more personal, strange narratives, while gaining a fictitious historical authenticity.
