These portraits show people with a rare condition called chimerism, which is caused by the fusion of two fertilized eggs (non-identical twins) at a very early stage of gestation in the womb. A sign of this condition is heterochromia, the possessing of eyes of two different colours.

Costumes | 2012

Costumes are important in the process of the work. Often when making a work the artist will be in costume, even when visiting an archive or filming. It is a way of positioning herself in a moment, bringing a layer of performance to the search that takes place when unearthing a narrative. This is a collection of images showing the costumes. Sometimes they are worn by LS and sometimes by others.

Review: Lindsay Seers’ Extramission 6 (Black Maria). Author: Michael Newman.

On first encounter, the visitor comes upon what looks like a large black, irregularly-shaped building within the gallery. Upon entering, he or she finds a place to sit, and watches a projected video that takes the form of a documentary about the strange life of Lindsay Seers – how she tried to turn herself into a camera by making exposures through her mouth, and how this may be connected to the fact that she had an eidetic – or photographic...
