This year it was a pleasure to exhibit alongside Margaret Dodd for SALA at GAGPROJECTS.
Created in response to the Robert Burns poem, To a Louse which includes the line, ‘Oh, would some Power give us the gift, To see ourselves as others see us’, Tsering Hannaford’s new works explore preoccupations of the self. The exhibition features sculptural objects placed within black boxes containing mirrors which are positioned so an image of the object repeats over and over again, a comment on society and our obsession with self-image. “They look at my thoughts about how women are encouraged to place undue emphasis on the self, which I have found to be a distraction from focusing on what’s important outside oneself,” says Hannaford. - Jane Llewellyn.
