Self-Portrait Collages | Turner Contemporary

Role
Artist Facilitator

Brief
Deliver a participatory collage workshop at Turner Contemporaryโ€™s Craft Club based on the Van Dyck Vanishments project.

Workshop
Using recycled paper, wallpaper samples, wrapping paper and old books visitors were invited to collage a self-portrait drawing inspiration from the Henri Gaudier-Brzeska piece currently on display as part of the exhibition Self: Image and Identity. I guided participants to elaborate areas of light and dark shadows on their faces, focusing on outlining the shapes cast by these.
