"Making Faces" Art Exhibition at Southbank Centre
Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre
This August, Hackney-based art collective Submit to Love Studios are exhibiting a series of works and installations by artists who have survived brain injuries. Running from 3rd- 23rd August in Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, Making Faces explores the role of the physical and emotional in the formation of identity....
The face is a moving map shaped by inheritance, by our feelings and by life events. It's also a billboard, a signalling post watched constantly by others for clues about our thoughts. Fractured, funny, affable, awkward; in the plane of the face, identity is negotiated and self-construction collides with reminders of what others gather - rightly or wrongly - from a first impression. In Making Faces, the artists of Submit to Love Studios explore the face, the body, the self and the disjuncture between what is seen and what is felt.
