Deborah Kelly: No Human Being Is Illegal (in all our glory)
The work comprises of 20 life-sized photographic portraits realised through ongoing discussion, exchange and art making between the artist, the subjects and public participants. The collaboration centres upon the nude photographic portraits of individuals who were intricately involved in the process. These raw and unornamented portraits developed over time as workshop participants added layers of archival and contemporary imagery specific to the subjects’ interests, attributes and vision, conveyed to the ensemble (through written, online or personal communications) by the portrait subjects themselves - extracted from Museums and Galleries of NSW website.
