Rina Dweck is pleased to present “Project Face,” a yearlong exercise in which the Brooklyn-based artist diligently shot 365 self-portraits. Ranging from the eccentric to the testimonial her photographs reflect a narrative take on voyeurism, pop culture, media, Jewish culture, and classical portraiture.
Dweck delves into her background meditating on what the act of creating a disguise can counter-intuitively reveal to both the artist and the viewer. Through the application of make-up, outlandish fashion, and the usage of props, Dweck conjures up scenarios rife with allusions from history and pop culture. Recalled are details from the artist’s life and her cultural surroundings; music videos of the 1980’s, glossy magazine shoots, symbols of Jewish culture and patterns on fabric.
