Mirror Mirror showcases the work of 10 Melbourne-based artists using self-portraiture to explore their diverse styles and subjects. The images in this exhibition are less about the individual and more about our collective concerns. What becomes apparent is the importance of the performative body to self-portraiture. As a vehicle of appropriation and transgression; the ‘performance’ of the body lets us to play out our desires and take on the power of that which is performed.
