DESCRIPTION

SWIMMING with NARCISSUS investigates identity and persona of both of the artist, and of the viewer, as provoked by the artist. 

The exhibit is a survey of atypical self-portraits. Instead of a tangible reflection of the figure based in realism, these contemporary approaches are instead conceptual meditations of the psyche, where representations may be distorted and altered, resulting in a diverse embodiment of identity. 

Throughout the exhibit, viewers will be confronted by sculptural artworks with reflective or mirrored surfaces, inherently provoking fractured and distorted perceptions of the viewer, causing them to consider the subjective nature of how one views their own image.
