There could be thousands of pictures of you online: photographic ‘selfies’ contrived to capture your best angles and features. How many really show how you feel about yourself and your body?
In a gallery setting, you’re invited to hear the audio portraits of strangers, who reveal the stories and the secrets of their bodies. As an additional option, you can step into a private booth, undress and confess – contributing your own self-portrait to the growing archive.
Honest, generous and affecting, The Naked Self was first seen at the Festival of Live Art in 2016. Don’t miss out on this specially created new season for Arts House in 2018.
