Cut to the Measure of Desire is a series of performance installations that respond
to feminism and spectatorship theories; the panopticon overseer and the resulting
state of perpetual exhibitionism. Reminiscent of the traditions of still-life painting
and the tableau-vivant, I pose within the scene - an imperfect being concealed within
a 2-dimensional idealised world. The aim to uphold the illusion of perfection is
futile and the codes of desire crumble under the weight of the spectators gaze.
Foolish Passion was performed in the Spinnerei - a textile factory turned into a
large gallery complex – and draws on this history to create an installation that
alludes to ideas of femininity, domesticity, and labour.
