(Fiona Phillips) Fifty Faces: Defacing Stigma

September 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

- Free

Approximately one in five adults in Utah are experiencing the invisible challenge of mental illness. Fiona’s work seeks to examine people’s perception of the “Face” of mental illness: what does a mentally ill person look like and how does one perceive health by appearance? Stigmatized misperception of the mentally ill can be barriers to healing. Her portrait paintings are large and accompanied by by an anonymous “ID” badge, each one states a stigma or slang word identifying the person as mentally ill or healthy and other statements to confront the viewer with image through the juxtaposition of connotation and denotation.
