The Stone Space is pleased to present Self Seeing, an exhibition of work by London based artist Cos Ahmet, and follows on from his series ‘Altered State’ presented at the Leytonstone Art Trail earlier this year. Self Seeing peels back the layers to reveal something Ahmet calls ‘ever-veneers’; undercurrents of dialogue that play with identity and sexuality. Constructing ‘pseudo-selves’ and altered egos in the form of grafted self-portraits and meta-figurative beings, the mask, a semblance of the artist, presents itself as this inseparable and constant companion, appearing in his work in several guises, presenting new gestures, flirting with previous selves, offering an altered discourse.
The Stone Space is open Thursday to Friday, 2-6pm, Saturday 12-5pm & Sunday 12-4pm. For further information about the exhibition, contact the gallery: firstname.lastname@example.org
