The latest image from a series of collaborations exploring ideas of identity; how we are perceived, how we perceive ourselves and how we might confuse or subvert expectations . With costume designer Pam Tait we considered the links between ageing and invisibility. Earlier posts show further collaborations
Continuing the “camouflage” series, these images were created with artist Rosa Eaton
We seek protection: from the elements, from each other, from the world. How we manage this depends on our psychological and material resources – we usually feel they are inadequate. These images are from a series called ‘protective devices’ made with the performer John Callaghan
masks help us to blend in with the crowd, sometimes our efforts are laughable, sometimes that’s the point. Workshops with young people explored this idea, exaggerating the common tropes of wigs, beards and glasses to enjoy the possibilities of trying out alternative identities.
