PORTRAITS IN ISOLATION

This Collective Art Project was one of our many Term 2 Power-up Wednesdays' activities that PLC Sydney conducted during the Coronavirus lockdown.

PLC Sydney's Portraits in Isolation, invited all students and staff of PLC Sydney to participate in a group artmaking project to collectively represent their unique insights into the current state of their lives at home during the 2 months in isolation. 

There was no requirements for participants to be an artist - the project welcomed all types and styles of personal expression. Any type of drawing or painting material could be used to create the work, allowing participants to be as creative as they could with what they had at home!

the Project

  • An A4 self-portrait artwork in any medium that could convey not only the artist's likeness but an insight into their emotional and intellectual experience at this time
  • Portrait blurb: included one or two lines about their personal thoughts, insights or observations about the current world they were living in
  • Photographs were taken of the finished work and uploaded to the Portraits in Isolation portal

The OUTCOME

The results of this wonderful initiative is a fabulous pop-up 'Portraits in Isolation' exhibition of the physical works submitted. PLC Sydney received over xxx entries and we were thrilled not only with the level of participation, but also the standard and creativity of the work. It was fantastic - well done PLC Sydney!
