Final Stages

With a month to go till the opening of the FACE UP exhibition things are getting exciting! Most of the images are framed and ready; the invitations and posters are done.

The portraits have been great fun to produce. Local identities were asked to bring a range of "artifacts" or items of importance (and themselves) to be photographed. We discussed ideas about how people see themselves, what is important or unique about them and in some cases people revealed who they would really like to be. The responses were very diverse and often surprising which made the process very challenging but exciting and rewarding for both me and the participants.

The photographed items are woven throughout the portrait and in some cases have been totally reconstructed to create the fantasy.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the opening but if you can't make it you will get a sense of the final product here.

This exhibition is part of the "Desert Fringe" an outreach of the Adelaide Fringe Festival. It will be on display throughout the month of March 2010.

Due to the cancellation of the accompanying exhibition I am able to fill the second gallery with marbled fabric... ;-)
