Mike Parr’s Self Portrait Project dominated his work from 1982 throughout the eighties, and still persists in the early nineties. In ten years almost one thousand self-portraits have been produced in different media. As a project it is as considerable as the performance art which characterised his work during the seventies. This text will offer an interpretation of the Self Portrait Project, mainly from a psychoanalytic standpoint, suggesting themes and motifs which appear to be crucial to Parr’s artistic process. Scarce Title.
