SELF/s PORTRAIT 2.0
An Aktion by Thomas John Bacon
Hosted by Home of Waifs and Strays
Thomas John Bacon's SELF/s PORTRAIT will be reworked into its second dissemination this month, following its successful premiere in Berlin as part of the MPA in May. Produced by HFWAS
In the grounds of Birmingham Cathedral, this new work takes the idea of large scale subtlety to the public. The work features a host of artists who will be exploring the conception of what the Self Portrait for a live artist may become when distilled into an action that also seeks to express, what is a central tenant for Thomas, of how Being is made of multiplicity of 'self/s'.
Alastair Flindal, Helen Grundy, Rebecca Homer, Loretta Hope, John Kadens, Suze de Lee, Sarah Fortes Mayer, Khembi Maynard, Andy Miller, Hannah Millest, Emilia Moniszko, Kimvi Nguyen, Jodie Ollis, Rachel Parry, Nadine Paige Riley , Helena Sands, Thomas Sellick-Newton, Alvin Tran, Jade Williams
Seen and unseen the portraits will appear from 1pm onwards, shifting the perception of the of those that may pass them by. Solitary figures hidden amongst the daily lives of Others, connecting through an unseen Flesh, temporarily altering a communal landscape.
