Changing Faces

For his swan dive into Jungian archetypes, local performance artist David Rohn is channeling more personalities than Sybil. During his solo show "In Characters" at Carol Jazzar Contemporary Art this Saturday at 7 p.m., the quick chameleon will unveil a suite of photographs and a series of performances exploring the forces that shape our fabricated personas.

"It had a lot to do with issues of personal discovery and stretching the limits of still photography in what are basically self-portraits," Rohn says. His alter egos range from a gangster to a Muslim woman, in addition to a realtor, senator, revolutionary, and curator. "I see my senator as a demon, and the revolutionary as a hero. But if we were in Washington, those archetypes would likely be switched around," Rohn laughs. His photography will be on display through April 11. In case you have trouble finding it, note that the gallery is inside the converted garage of a Miami Shores home.
March 27-April 11, 7 p.m., 2010
