Teresa Eng spent time as an artist in resident in China in 2012 and 2015. In her new artists’ book “Self/Portrait”, Teresa presents portraits of Chinese millenials that she approached in a shopping centre alongside one of their selfie from their mobile phone. The portraits, lit by the bright LED advertisements, are introspective. In contrast, each subject’s selfie reveals details of their lives and interests as well as how they want to be seen. Self/Portrait speaks of individualisation in a transitioning capitalist society as well as the need to belong.
