This sculpture, accompanied by a custom made pedestal, is part of a series titled 'I estrange therefore I am'. In this series, I explored how self-portraits could be constructed or deconstructed through the involvement of others. This bust sculpture is made from translucent paraffin wax and the broken pieces of gifts that I received from fellow artists. These gifts were formerly smashed up in a video work titled 'self-portrait smashing the possessions of self and other'. Link: This video documents the violent genesis of a sculpture that looks powerful but is delicate in terms of its material.
