It gives us great pleasure to announce that SELF/s Portrait will be presented by Panoply Performance Lab this month in Brooklyn, New York. Thomas has been overjoyed at the request to bring this work to the USA, and this performance will mark his first stop prior to premiering PERCEPTION:Lab at Mobius in Boston on 20th June.
SELF/s Portrait is a disseminative action, offering the open reciprocal enactment of the self portrait of Thomas John Bacon in exchange with the Being of each participant; acknowledging how each individual brings something distinctively different to the presence of an image and its perception.
It thereby facilitates a visual representation of the multiplicity of Self/s that Bacon proposes exists within each of us while creating a portrait for the performance artist that works primarily through action.
To date it has been performed in Berlin, Germany (MPA), Birmingham, UK (HFWAS) and will now be staged in Brooklyn - NYC, USA (PPL).
Places will be limited
Participants will need to be available from 6pm and will share a short intimate workshop with Thomas John Bacon at PPL prior to exhibiting this action on the streets of Brooklyn.
