Australia's favourite performance artist is showing his latest sculpture works as part of Melbourne Festival

Mike Parr is best known for his innovative performance artworks (earlier this year he was buried under a main road in Hobart), but for Melbourne Festival he'll be showing his latest project: self portraits made from glass sculpture. But all of the sculptures have been created through "blind negative modelling," which essentially means Parr has replaced his sight with other senses.
