Hide and Seek: Self-portraits

Hide and Seek brings the viewer face-to-face with the most potent yet enigmatic form of self-expression: the self-portrait. The 50 self-portraits brought together for this exhibition traverse the allusive and fluctuating territory of self-perception, bringing forth totem creatures, symbolic incarnations, monstrous visions and palpable internal pain.  It emphasises the multiplicity and mutability of the self, tackling mortality head-on and examining the relationship between interiority and the physical self.
