British artist Jessa Fairbrother will be putting on her first major solo show at the Photographer's Gallery.
Fairbrother's chief interest is in performance, and she uses self-portraits of her own naked body as a canvas for self-expression, painstakingly embellishing the picture with needle perforations so the very surface of the print carries a counterpoint narrative.
Constellations & Coordinates showcases two new bodies of work.
Constellations is inspired by religious icons and ancient sculptures of female deities, superimposing intricate lace-like patterns around pictures of her body.
Coordinates uses needle and thread to reveal hidden contour lines, tracing her own emotional topography on photographs of her body.
