Price on request

Untitled (Self-portrait as Carrie) depicts Danh Vo posing for a typical Danish school portrait. The title references the main character Stephen King’s horror movie Carrie. In the context of Vo’s artistic practice, which is often based around his own biography, the work may be read as a visual representation of the individual’s struggle to integrate into a new system. Vo often uses family photographs for his photogravure projects, embedding his own family’s biography in a wider historical context.
