In these works Joubert explore the construction of identity, focussing on our portrayal of self. It's usually a wistful, wishful desire of being able to construct the self from organic components as opposed to social conventions and constructs, which dominate our movementsand choices.
The skeleton is freed from the layers of social imposition and expectation and we clad it back with very specific ideologies of what we want people to portray us as. The power of our own choice.
These abstract portraits show organic material in resistance with the forced forms of the person. They portray the idea that no matter how organic we think the process of identity is, it will always be constructed through norms
