Summary or Abstract : In my art practice I look at constructions of identity as viewed through aspects of genetics, psychology, the autobiographical self and the relationship to the Other. I envision these constructions gathered within a matrix of the self; a site where experiences and concepts accumulate and coalesce. I began this exploration with the genome--the smallest increment of individual identity and examines its relationship to self-perception. Wider ramifications include the implications of mass-reproduction and the angst inherent in technological control and domination. Seeking further clues in the construction of identity, I turned to psychology, in particular Lacan's mirror theory as an integral component of many of the works in the exhibition. Next I looked at the role of autobiography, both as a self-created narrative in the formation of the artist's identity and the issues surrounding biographical readings of women's art. Last, I examined the Self as it comes in contact with an unfamiliar culture the Other--drawing from personal experiences while living and working in Sri Lanka, as well as a study period in New York. The ideas in my thesis were influenced by the work of artists such as Gary Schneider, Eva Hesse and Adrian Piper. Based on these explorations, I conclude that the construction of identity is a layered and shifting process. Each of the constructions investigated for this thesis, in its various guises, are only a partial view of the self. Each work in the exhibition began with a singular concept but evolved into a site of multiple meaning, especially as the works within the gallery interacted visually and conceptually. In the end this multiplicity within the matrix is the reason why identity remains so elusive..
