Tracey Moffatt has used self-portraiture to dress up as famous personalities that share her brithsign and acted out poses to mimic these individuals.  In the example above Moffatt has used self-portraiture in a style of old Victorian lantern shows of a scene from a melodrama.  This project considered historical issues of colonialism, slavery, class, sexuality and addiction.  The image above is called Laudanum and below is called ‘The Darkness Below’.
