Perfume as Practice is an exhibition that looks at the artistic potential of perfumery and how it can be used to create portraiture. The exhibition will comprise 18 perfumes, each a portrait of another artist. These perfume portraits are achieved through a process that begins by asking artists the question ‘why do you make art?’ Then, through a method of intuition and investigation, I create a perfume relative to the answer received – capturing the essence of an artist.
The exhibition will be supported by visual livery pertaining to the theme of ‘Voyage’, has been designed by the artists I have made perfume portraits for; resulting in a collaborative effort that builds a network of artists. The exhibition promises to subvert your expectations of scent, perfume and portraiture in general!
