Self Portrait Doll

Finite Self: The Self-Doll exhibition and Launch

This mindful Artistic project began in 2013 by the Brazilian artist Ada Rovai that reunites, in an exhibition, the collective of self-portrait dolls made over since then and over the last two months in workshops around the City and North Adelaide with community to share all different identities and inner universes of the people and place.

Until now, more than 900 people participated in these workshops. The 'SELF-DOLL' was created in 2013 to bring the doll as an element of self-knowledge. It allows participants to make visible their inner universe through the self-portrait dolls.
