Shrouds and Shroud Making with Blake Lawrence

Drawing on the Byzantium and trans-cultural practice of shrouding and wrapping bodies in fabric, Blake Lawrence will share with you his artistic practice. A shared moment of intimate performance, immersion, resurrection and manifestation results in a warped and blurred impression of the subject. Enthographic photographic practices are subverted in this way with the masking of gender, age, ability, culture and other markers for identity. In their place, meteorological and biological impressions remain, hinting at time, place and environment as indexes for each portrait.
