Portraits and Identity

Winner of the Turner Prize in 2003, Grayson Perry was the first ceramist to be awarded the accolade. But recently, Perry has participated in a channel documentary series called Who are You?, in which he turned his hand to portraiture. Perry's portraits come in the form of tapestries, sculptures, and pots, and focusses on people who are all searching for their identity. Amongst his subjects are the politician, Chris Huhne, a young female-to-male transsexual, Northern Ireland Loyalist marchers, and The X-Factor contestant, Rylan Clark.

These portraits are currently on display at the National Portrait Gallery and can be seen until the 15th March. During the exhibit, there will be lectures, panel discussions, and a Wear it Out workshop for young people who want to explore their identity.
