As you step into Anthony Goicolea's exhibition of photographs and DVD's, you enter his world of childhood fantasies and fears. The New York based artist is mostly recognised for his multiple self-portraits, where clones of himself appear in his digitally altered realities. Frequently portraying himself as an adolescent schoolboy, Goicolea brings a sense of innocence to his often provocative images.
Works like Double Dare draw attention to adolescent sexual experiments, with Goicolea and his clone both licking a frozen clothesline in the snow. As Goicolea states, 'I am interested in ways of dealing with the body and self perceptions, identity and ego and narcissism, particularly through using multiple self-portraits, exaggerated narcissism and alter ego.'
