Self Portrait/ There's Someone in My Head...

Self Portrait/ There’s someone in My Head…’ is an investigation of the inner ‘self’ through a Jungian lens.

Phillips McLaren has hand-crafted four effigies representing Jung’s four main archetypes, which, when combined, represent the whole ‘Self’.

Each video-sculpture characterises separate aspects of my identity, performing independently but at the same time, collectively creating a single self-portrait in a three-dimensional environment. These performances range in delivery and dialogue and are designed to engage the viewer on multiple levels.

Phillips McLaren disrupts any emotive response to the piece by revealing the mechanisms of its operation.
