all about me

In many cases when people look a information about others e.g. the personal adds, they immediately consider their own identity / see themselves looking back. Today’s self-help culture puts much emphasis on our identity and the traits that make up the picture that we are. It tells you that self-fulfillment can be reached by clocking up a list of attributes. Self obsession, who am I, tell me more about me, its all about me….

Many (number not finalised) “Lonely hearts’ pages torn from newspapers. All descriptions that do not relate to the artist have been marked out (black ink). Leaving only word that the artist feels matches her idea of her identity. (This may vary from day to day in the marking process). All pages pined in rows to gallery wall.
