Laith McGregor 'Hide Your Eyes' at Splendour in the Grass

19 July 2018

Laith McGregor is one of the artists contributing to this years’ Splendour in the Grass Arts Program. His work, 'Hide Your Eyes’, is a self-portrait of the artist in the likeness of a guru or religious figure transferred onto a series of banners that viewers are invited to manipulate in various ways - to deface, distort and alter. Ready with permanent markers to be drawn on in situ, the banners will evolve in collaboration with the Splendour crowd. Laith invites participants to draw faces, text, graffiti and personal ramblings directly onto the work, thereby building an alternate communal persona.
