Political Defacements – the Unportraits of Caroline Jaine

As elections loom in the UK, I thought I would express my distaste for the world of political positioning and their use of portraits of political leaders to “persuade us”.  An extract here from my unportraits collection.  See more here.

“Making portraits is a response to the natural human tendency to think about oneself, of oneself in relation to others” – Richard Brilliant

“Defacement works on objects the way jokes work on language, bringing out their inherent magic nowhere more so than when those objects have become routinized and social…” – Michael Taussig
