Map of Days is a highly unusual self-portrait in the form of a map of a fortified city. The city walls become a visual metaphor for the artist’s skin, while areas in and around the city correspond to the life events, experiences and emotions that shape one’s personality and sense of self. One’s identity, like any city, is dependent on the landscape it sits in. According to Perry, the ‘self’ “is not a single fixed thing but a lifelong shifting performance”. This portrait was loosely inspired by a map depicting John Bunyan's 1678 allegory, The Pilgrim's Progress.

Frame: 119.0 x 161.0 cm (46.9 x 63.4 in)
