Faces: Anatomy of Autonomy
30 September - 21 October 2013
Faces, the Anatomy of Autonomy, is a fun and interactive exhibition of graphic art for everyone.
Faces is an ongoing personal project by Lee Goater. Started in 2012, Lee created ‘responsible magnetic street-art for sharing’ and anonymously distributed 180 polaroid sized magnets around the UK. Working with a restricted pallet, eight different characters were initially created to represent different genders, ages and cultures. Surprised by how the different characters were interpreted led Lee to further question the idea of self.
Throughout October, the ‘Anatomy of Autonomy’ exhibition takes Faces into its second phase.
The Exhibition aims to question the difference between who we are and how we are perceived.
- Do people perceive us the way intend?
- Are we the same person to our friends and families as to our colleagues and acquaintances?
- Are we the same person in the actual and virtual worlds we occupy?
- Do people make assumptions about and judge us at face value?
- At the end of the day, are any of us really that different?
