Perfume as Practice SS16

Perfume as Practice SS16 housed 25 unique and varied perfume portraits at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield, from 3rd-18th March 2016. Each fragrance served as a portrait of another artist based on their response to the question ‘Why do you make art?’

Each bottle comprised 14 drops of each essential oil note in a 48ml alcohol and spring water carrier. Each bottle was visually embellished, further extending the notion that each perfume served as a portrait capturing the unique personas of artists. Further visual elements also existed within the space.
