Through the Looking Glass

‘Through the Looking Glass’ is a series of works done for the practical component to my Masters studies at the University of Pretoria. The complete exhibition presented a body of work that addresses how ‘spectacle’ affects the individual in contemporary westernised cultures. Exploring notions of ‘viewing’, ‘looking’ and exhibitionism, it forms a response to globalisation and the concurrent disappearance, or fragmentation, of traditionally defined structures and identities.
