Identify, Identity, Identikit.
If the Riverina was a person what would it look like? Using an old police procedure to make a fictional face for identification purposes, Tony Curran is constructing a portrait of the Riverina. This unique public program is part of the Femme fatale: The female criminal touring exhibition from the Historic Houses Trust of NSW and everyone is invited to contribute!
Keeping in line with the theme of criminal history and forensics Tony will be working on site at the Museum making an ‘identikit’. Tony will be hand drawing facial features of Museum visitors and compiling them into a kit, to donate to the Museum's collection as a portrait of the Riverina.
To participate in Identify, Identity, Identikit people are invited to come to the Historic Council Chambers site on any Saturday between March 31 and June 16 from 10am -4pm. There, visitors will be seated with the artist to have some of their face drawn and submitted to the collection.
Identify, Identity, Identikit is part of Tony’s ongoing research into portraiture, the face, and who we are. Tony Curran is a PhD student at Charles Sturt University researching 'Persons and Portrayal: What is a person and how should we portray them?'
Identify, Identity, Identikit on any Saturday between March 31 and June 16 from 10am -4pm.
