through Sep 14
27 Apr, 2008 - 14 Sep, 2008

South African artist Gary Schneider has long been fascinated with the possibilities of photographic portraiture to explore issues of identity. FLESH includes his John in Sixteen Parts, a set of black-and-white fragments of his partner’s face seen through time; Genetic Self-Portrait, his installation, which employs medical-imaging techniques to depict his own body from the inside out; and Heads and Nudes, where Schneider uses exposures of up to three hours to explore and transform the flesh of friends and family.
