Sarah Brownlow ‘The Idea was to Disguise Oneself’ 18th May 2014

Artist Statement:
‘The Idea was to Disguise Oneself’ is a series of images that explore of the mask as a means of assuming an alternate identity. The photographic self-portraits reveal the transformative nature of wearing a mask, and how this affects the way the wearer relates to, and appears within public space. The thirty-four backlit images intend to raise questions around representation of self in the public sphere, the transparent nature of the print stock further emphasises the opaque layers we cloak our true selves in when presenting ourselves to others.
