Winning Entry in Camden Arts Centre's 'Making and Unmaking' Contest

  • Sarah Jayne Bird
The theme was pattern, process and portraiture for this Instagram contest run by the Camden Arts Centre. My entry (selected by designer Duro Olowu, who curated the exhibition 'Making/Unmaking' at the gallery) includes one of my own pattern designs, a cast of my own teeth and some medals awarded to me as a child. The text is from a political activist pamphlet that was posted through my door. All these elements come together to describe a struggle to get to a point of reward, or not.
