Sculptor Brian Griffiths has invited a number of friends, family and colleagues to make a puppet of themselves – a self portrait, a kind of imposter or impersonator, like all representations.

An exhibition as part fantasy, part social experiment, Griffiths considers ideas and forms of self-presentation, where intimate content gets swept along with the impossibly dramatic.

The puppets and makers:

Issy Brain created by Issy Brain
Philip Evans created by Philip Evans
Luke Gottelier created by Luke Gottelier
Brian Griffiths created by Brian Griffiths
Ron Griffiths created by Brian Griffiths
Sarah Jones created by Sarah Jones
Frank Kent created by Frank Kent
Sally O’Reilly created by Sally O’Reilly

Sally Shaw created by Sally Shaw
David Thorpe created by David Thorpe
Francis Uprichard created by Francis Upritchard
