Hide and Seek brings the viewer face to face with the most potent yet enigmatic form of self-expression; the self-portrait.
Over fifty 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. This exhibition emphasises the multiplicity and mutability of the self, tackling mortality head on and questioning the relationship between the internal and external.
Hide and Seek explores the tension between what is revealed and what is concealed by someone’s self-portrait. This exhibition raises the question as to how much we can tell about an artist from their self-portrait, and leads us to consider how we might portray ourselves.
