Exhibition in the Maze – on-going
Saturday 6 April - Stansted Heads – an exhibition of masks by artist Mike Bartlett in the Stansted Maze
For Stansted Heads artist Mike Bartlett has made masks from a cast of his own face and layered these with individual faces of people he has met and photographed at Stansted House, these include people involved in all aspects of the Stansted estate, visitors as well as photographing historical figures from the many portrait paintings in the house.
These composite heads will hang on the Maze walls and other sites, such as the Chapel entrance.
From the Maze people may be able to identify some of the portrait sources from the paintings in the house.
Throughout the summer they will weather and change.
Parallel to the Stansted Heads exhibition is a group exhibition called Duplicity at the Transition gallery in which Mike has made masks from a cast of his own head and layered them with the faces of friends some here, some gone – these composite simulacra are the subjects for a series of Mask paintings
