Lost Identity
Often we feel like we don’t fit, like we are unsure of who or what we are or where we belong in this world. Our identities can be changed through assuming different guises, changing clothes or hairstyles, wearing or not wearing make-up, moving house, changing jobs and relationship breakdowns helping us feel more in control of our identity and enabling us to mould ourselves to fit (or not fit) into different environments and contexts. The ‘Lost Identity’ gallery gathers together works that confront our obsession with identities showcasing work by non-binary and gender fluid artists, immigrant artists who notice one identity fade in the shadow of another and artists who feel like their battles with mental health disfigure their identities to themselves and those around them.
