Neanderthal Narcissus

Rasmus Myrup’s works on paper depict two portraits of Neanderthal men. In one, a closeup of a Neanderthal man’s face reveals the familiar pose of someone looking at the wrinkles on their face as it reflects in the water below. In the other, a Neanderthal man poses elegantly on the edge of a cavernous lake, strategically positioned to be able to check out his own backside in its reflection. These routine gestures of self-observation—present in our own daily lives—intermesh our narratives with those of the Neanderthals, as Myrup’s cheekily fills in the gaps of our own understanding.
