Fantasy armour, adornments and alternative personas—Choose Your Fighter brings together the work of young artists local to the Blacktown area. Through a series of workshops and conversations, the artists have developed costumes and props that highlight personal experiences, connections to place and this current time. These surreal objects were then used to produce a series of fictional and fantastical self-portraits that explore concepts of world-building, placemaking and code-switching.
