These images are part of 'Self ID’, an ongoing series of mix media photographic portraits produced by Lee Grant, Blaide Lallemand and Tilly Davey. Artists worked in collaboration with the residents of Ainslie Village to document the unique consciousness of The Village. The hybrid images were formed using digital portraits shot by Lee Grant as a base for the residents, Blaide Lallemand and Tilly Davey to build up using a variety of different wet and dry mediums. This process enabled the artists and the residents to work in an experimental collaborative manner to explore different forms of identity.
In 2016, artists Tim Burke, Tony Steele and Tilly Davey conceived a community art project - De Fence. The vision was a large, outdoor, timber sculpture that incorporated the voices and visions of a community of artists living with mental illness. They hoped, together with the participants, to create a visual expression of recovery journeys, incorporating images inspired by their past, present and future.
