Guardian

Description

5 Guardians in the series
For You Winsome, You Lose Some, Karla Dickens has worked with a group of homeless, socially challenged individuals in northern NSW. The masks they have created from recycled materials are powerful and disturbing. They bear traces of Hannibal Lecter with their grilles and rusted metal protrusions, but the photographs of Dickens’ collaborators holding the masks to their faces speak of self-protection and camouflage rather than aggression or deception.
