As a means of exploring identity, reality and fake news, I created a Two alter egos. One was a successful ceramicist from NYC called Sebastian Bastian, who i created the studio of through collaging collagraph prints.
The other was a British newsreader called Barbara Brown. Playing on stereotypes of female British newsreaders from the 1980s, I anglicised my accent, raided my mum’s jewellery box and gathered a collection of polyester, shoulder-padded jackets. The final resolve contains complex layers of real and fake, offering viewers an opportunity to examine real human behaviour through a fictional character.
The work was exhibited in Glasgow, London and Copenhagen.
