Bottom Feeders and The Distant Self: Alternative Approaches to Self-Portraiture
Bottom Feeders and the Distant Self aims to present art making as a means of self-reflection and indexing. Delving beyond the limited thresholds of representation and likeness, the artists in this exhibition are asked to experiment, interrupt, and test their individual experiences to present works that reach for a deeper understanding of mental and physical being, expanding the definition of “self-portrait.” Through multidisciplinary curating this exhibition surveys the ways in which artists working in different media approach the underpinnings of personal narrative and psychological nuance that describe the experience of “self.”
Curated by Trevor King.
