The family portrait is a loaded subject area, a subject well known to all. Freud offered a description of the feeling of the 'uncanny', as a well known or homely item or atmosphere that somehow unnerved. This is something I have brought into my investigation; it is juxtaposition to emotions commonly linked with the family portrait. My work looks at identity and ones identity in the family. Visually layering my family onto me, to look at genetic identity, as well as creating performances to show an identity of environment. I become a passive ventriloquists doll to the ideas and movements placed on me by relatives.
