Mike Parr ex­plores glass as a sculp­tural medium in this con­tin­u­ous per­for­ma­tive in­stal­la­tion of ‘blind neg­a­tive modelling’. With his sight ob­scured the artist ar­ranged a se­ries of glass heads over the ground floor space of the gallery and com­menced draw­ing repet­i­tive oval shapes in pas­tel on the wall, to cre­ate a net. The resid­ual and bro­ken pieces of pig­ment left in situ as part of the work. Parr’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion adds a new di­men­sion to his his­toric ‘Self Por­trait Project’.
