This new work, performed at FLUX factory, New York July 2011, extends my exploration of how the gallery space frames the erotic female body in performance, using live feed and play with the space to structure the gaze.
The work aims to explore the processes that produce the erotic female body as spectacle, flipping the focus from the performing body to include the camera, gallery space and spectator. An interchange between the ‘live’ and the represented is theatrically stage to produce slippage between bodies that may act and be acted upon , and those that exist as spectacular image that can be exchanged in the economy of the visual. Themes of voyeurism, exhibitionism and narcissistic fascination twist and cross, as viewers become embroiled in their own act of consumption.
With thanks, as ever to MART
