Combining photographic self-portraiture and costume making, Gerwyn Davies work is an ongoing inventory of selves that are assembled, worn and performed for the camera. Through the layering act of dress, the body is used as a platform for reinvention, concealing the body in order to reveal new articulations of self.

Prioritising the excess and artifice of Camp, these manicured bodies are finally reconciled in to photo constructions of space.
