The mirror is a recurring material in the works of London based artist Ralph Dunn. His gay identity often reflected in a practice that encompasses video, sculpture, sound, text, photography, and performance. Dunn invites his viewers to step into his personal space, blurring the boundaries between private and public. When watching his work, the breath of the artist is felt. In that breath is longing, desire, want, and release.
