Imitation of Life
Preview Wed 21 May 6-8pm

“Imitation of Life,” an exhibition of Dublin artist, Jenny Brady’s research into the practice of reborning, an activity involving customizing vinyl dolls to realistically resemble a human baby. Reborning, the art of transforming a play or collector doll into a realistic, unique baby doll began in the late 1980s. Using veining, mottling, blushing, weighting, and other enhancement techniques, the dolls are made to resemble, in as much as possible, real babies. For this exhibition, Brady has created a ‘reborn’ of herself as an 8-week old baby on the day of her baptism, making reference to the history of self-portraiture within art practice.
