The London Group

Reflection 05 is one in a series of five video portraits of people with facial disfigurement. It seeks to question what constitutes beauty, identity and difference. Like an image reflected in water, our physical appearance is not static - it changes under the effects of age, illness or accidents, and these effects can change how we see ourselves and how others see us. In this context, would perhaps an identity built on healthy narcissism - a healthy sense of self-love and acceptance - rather than on physical appearance be more helpful, especially for those with disfigurement?
Each video can be screened alone as a single-channel work, or together as a 5-channel projection.
