Blind artists unveil self-portraits

source: Annanova

 

An art gallery in Chile has launched an exhibition of self-portraits by blind artists.

Thirty people are showing photographs, drawings and sculptures in Valdivia.

They wanted to show their lack of sight doesn't mean they have no artistic sense.

Newspaper Las Ultimas Noticias reports all the artists took photos of themselves to accompany their work.

They used the texture of the backdrop to make sure they were in frame and then used a remote-control device to take their picture.

Critics have described the exhibition as a resounding success.

They particularly praised the imaginative staging. All the sculptures are displayed in a darkened room so visitors have to use touch to explore them.

The lights have also been turned out in the museum's bar and cafe, giving visitors a taste of how it is to be blind.
