Representing the indifference of the art critic and the art audience, the audience in the circus had to be anonymous without being too somber or even scary. It turned out to be quite a difficult balance, to find the right expression for this "character".
Nothing really seemed to work, until it struck me that the audience had to be faceless and I came to think of these painted masonite things in travelling tivolies, where you can stick your head through a hole and have your photograph taken. And that was it!
