True self 2

True Self has launched and all the collaborative works look great! Head to the auction website Gala Bid to see the range of works and place a bid.
A limited edition run of A3 prints are also available at the exhibition, for $85 each. Head to the GPO before Sunday 23rd June to catch the show.
Here’s my collaborative photograph with Dylan Martorell, and a little blurb on what it’s about:

For their True Self collaboration, Dylan Martorell and Clare Rae have created an image that combines their interests in costuming and gesture to capture a positive self-image summoned from childhood fantasies and mythologies. For the project they created a series of costumes using various found materials gleaned from the streets of Brunswick. The resulting image is part speculative Sci-fi fantasy, part modern day ethnography, with a nod to childhood heroes of DIY, Stig of the Dump and Catweazle.





True Self

If you’re passing through the city over the coming month pop into TRUE SELF at the GPO. I have collaborated with Dylan Martorell  to create  a photograph for auction over the course of the exhibition. All proceeds are going to Fitted For Work, an excellent charity that provides outfitting and interview services for disadvantaged women looking for employment.

Level1, GPO, cnr Bourke and Elizabeth Streets, Melbourne.
