Summary
What happens when the artists becomes the art? In Transformation, three artists satirize society and reinvent icons of literature, art history, and pop culture by inhabiting the characters they create and capturing the sensibilities of our age. It is a personal portrait of Yinka Shonibare MBE, Cindy Sherman, and Paul McCarthy-three contemporary artists refashioning their identity by way of extreme and avant-garde techniques in costume-making, sculpting, make-up, and cinema, and casting themselves as leading "characters", so we may see ourselves, and our world, more clearly.
