05.04.18 Exhibition Opening | A Portrait is a Puzzle: Cherine Fahd

6 pm – 8 pm    

ACP Project Space Gallery
72 Oxford Street
Darlinghurst NSW 2010


Please join us for the official opening of Cherine Fahd's A Portrait is a Puzzle

Each work in this exhibition is a unique piece in the puzzle of Cherine Fahd’s ongoing self-portrait. Merging her own identity with those of others, Fahd reveals, disguises, universalises, and empathises. From hipsters with beards to celebrity glamour shots, each image elicits our adaptive unconscious to question the validity of first impressions and the norms that produce social stereotypes.

This exhibition is accompanied by Fahd’s latest publication A Portrait Is A Puzzle. An artwork itself, this beautifully designed photobook pairs two photographic series each inviting the reader to turn the book over and around, and to interrogate the function of a portrait and the people it depicts, as an infinite and unsolvable puzzle.

 

 RSVP essential.
