Zebra One Gallery will feature a body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) and self-image exhibition in Hampstead, London from November 24 to December 9.
Ten artists will showcase their works at the exhibition, titled Identity, which will examine how self-perceptions are shaped by experience, society and the media as well as its impact on mental health.
A percentage of funds raised from the exhibition will go to The BDD Foundation, a charity dedicated to supporting those suffering with BDD.
The show’s curator, Zebra One Gallery owner Gabrielle Du Plooy, said, “This is a positive and empowering exhibition of carefully cherry-picked artists, opening important conversations about identity and body dysmorphia at the most critical time.”
Among the collections will be never-before-seen images of popstar Lady Gaga taken by photographer Derrick Santini. Gaga famously suffered from BDD in her teens, leading to eating disorder battles.
Other artists include Leigh de Vries, Meltem Isik, Bruno Metra and Laurence Jeanson, Scarlet Isherwood, Daniel Martin, Bartosz Beda, James Green and Mason Storm.
The VIP private view will be held on November 22, from 6.30-8.30pm at The Old Street Gallery in Shoreditch.
