Statement

These photographs are cut-up versions of polaroids which were created largely as records of people to be used in Gus’s film projects. For this show, they have been digitally reconstructed--cut up, taken apart and re-combined in uncanny, dreamlike musings on the multi-facedness of persona. At the same time, they destabilize the dialogue between viewer and image, challenging the essence of the photographic portrait, the subject as signifier for identity.
