Show Us Your TeethConstructions (featuring Doodad and Fandango)
21 February - 10 March 2018
Opening night Tuesday 20 February 2018, 5-8 PM
Constructions present’s new works by performance collective Show Us Your Teeth. The fun, colourful artworks explore the fluidity and incompleteness of personal identity and the role that disguise and camouflage play in the perception of who we are.
In 'Tableau', performers oscillate between exhibitionist and camouflaged displays of self-expression. The performers move freely between environments in the gallery marking the consciousness with which many people disguise their identities, camouflaging themselves in the encoded visual language of different communities to survive. 'Piece by Piece' see’s the artists work to piece them(selves) together, attempting to complete a series of five 1000 piece self‐portrait puzzles from memory.
