Library Shelf Location 18.FORT
Publication Date 2013

Self Contained, brings together several strands of artist Rebecca Fortnum’s recent work on the formation of identity and the power of the gaze.

This publication documents drawings shown at the V&A Museum of Childhood (2011–12) and works installed at the Freud Museum London (2013) and contains essays by Maria Walsh, Graham Music and Louisa Minkin as well as by Fortnum herself.

‘Fortnum’s meditation on the self hinges on a dichotomy – is there a secret core self or are we simply a ‘cluster of appurtenances’ that flow into and out of other people and things?’ (Maria Walsh)
