Fiona Clark: Self Image

5 September – 9 October 1990

Fiona Clark's photographs "stem from the notion of Beauty/Self Beauty". She writes:

In 1977 I had a motor-vehicle accident which left me with considerable plastic surgery and sight in one eye. I have taken hospital files and images of myself as the basis of this work.

Clark's photographs are attached to the scalloped-edged, 'picture' mirrors of 1960's New Zealand, to create images which reverberate with reflections, past and present, personal and cultural.
