A contemporary self-portrait: Am I just a beer girl?

Wai Nam NGUYEN

Research output: Other contributionHonours Project

Abstract

As the conductor of this project, I turn myself an artist and also a beer girl. On one hand, I would like to go into the stereotypes as mentioned, I am also curious about whether I would gain a new understanding of the labelled beer girl, generating a new way of seeing through the artistic search of self. Thus, I take a half year to experience beer promotion in various local restaurants and bars, as one part of the art-based research activity. I first review examples of self-portrait of different approaches, and then develop a contemporary self-portrait in a trilogy - a performance, an art diary and an exhibition, based on my experience as a beer girl.
