Maria Teresa Gavazzi - Jubilee Portraits - If I Were The Queen
6/2/2012 to 6/3/2012
Saturday & Sunday 1-6pm or by appointment
How does it feel to be the Queen?
This project will explore the destiny and responsibility of the monarch and imagine the private feelings that come with the role.
Lords, ladies and gentlemen! You are invited to take part in a performative action, to pose for a photographic portrait wearing a replica of the Imperial State Crown. Which emotions will you expose or conceal, when posing and pondering... 'If I Were The Queen'?
Tea will be served accompanied by music from the Coronation (at which Christopher Herrick, the gallerist's father sang as a young chorister). Please contact the gallery if you would like to book a time for your portrait or just come along over the weekend: firstname.lastname@example.org
