This defiant self-portrait was included in Mute at White Cube 2, an exhibition infused with references to the fragility of life following the artist's battle with cancer. The stuffed hare is both a traditional symbol of lust and passion and also a reference to the loss of hair associated with chemotherapy treatment.
