Documentation of the workshop I gave in July 2012 at Wysing Art Centre, Bourn, Cambridge:
My aim to share a conceptual method, which involves taking them through a thinking and making process. I introduced the workshop titled The Mirror And Self Portraiture (By The Other), Hystory, Psychology And Art Strategies. My initial thoughts were that the group would engage in a collaborative process of inquiry, reflection, and creation by using writing, drawing, performance to experiment with responses to personal histories. Self-portraiture allows for a personal way to examine multiple global and local issues of identity and power relations. This terrain also allows the examination of how different ways of knowing and seeing the world impact how people understand each other and themselves.
